AWS for Developers For Dummies,

Everything you need to get running with IaaS for Amazon Web Services Modern businesses rely on Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)-a setup in which someone else foots the bill to create application environments-and developers are expected to know how to write both platform-specific and IaaS-supported applications. If you're a developer who writes desktop and web applications but have little-to-no experience with cloud development, this book is an essential tool in getting started in the IaaS environment with Amazon Web Services. In Amazon Web Services For Developers For Dummies, you'll quickly and easily get up to speed on which language or platform will work best to meet a specific need, how to work with management consoles, ways you'll interact with services at the command line, how to create applications with the AWS API, and so much more. Assess development options to produce the kind of result that's actually needed Use the simplest approach to accomplish any given task Automate tasks using something as simple as the batch processing features offered by most platforms Create example applications using JavaScript, Python, and R Discover how to use the XML files that appear in the management console to fine tune your configuration
Making sense of Amazon Web Services doesn't have to be as difficult as it seems-and this book shows you how. John Mueller is an author and technical editor who has written 103 books. Some of his current works include Python development books. He has also written AWS For Admins For Dummies, which provides administrators a great place to start with Amazon Web Services (AWS). John has had an interest in AWS since its inception. In fact, he wrote Mining Amazon Web Services based on that humble beginning. Be sure to read John's blog at http://blog.johnmuellerbooks.com/.

AWS for Developers For Dummies,


With the availability of cloud-based resources, developers today have an unprecedented opportunity to create amazing applications that previously weren't possible. Amazon Web Services (AWS) enables developers to interact with the entire world, even when their application supports the smallest of organizations. The access to services in the cloud is amazing enough, but the access to data and other resources is now at mind-boggling levels. Unfortunately, many developers are indeed overawed by the sheer size and scope of cloud-based development, which is why you need AWS For Developers For Dummies .

This book is about making things simple. You don't have to try to understand the entire cloud or even just AWS in a single sitting; instead, AWS For Developers For Dummies breaks down all the concepts into smaller chunks. If you want to create imaginative applications, this books helps you do so without spending frustrating hours learning the arcane AWS API beforehand. Life is short. With this book, you can create an application in just a few hours and become productive more quickly, freeing you from the drudgery of learning quite a lot to do only a little.
About This Book

The purpose of AWS For Developers For Dummies is to help you get up and running quickly. You build a test environment and install tools that let you experiment with many of the major services without a lot of effort. The focus of this book is to get you started doing something by using just a few of the services. One of the hardest parts of working with AWS is that so many services are available (more than 100 of them) that a developer might go nuts just trying to figure out where to begin. This book relieves you of that problem.

Most of the book examples focus on three kinds of AWS interaction: through the console, through the Command Line Interface (CLI), and programmatically. In most cases, these are the three ways developers begin working with AWS. The console lets you see how AWS works from an administrative level. Using CLI helps you understand the AWS functionality at a deeper level, plus you can use it to create scripts. Finally, this book uses Python Notebooks to make experimentation very easy. You don't have to write complete applications to see something happen; just a few lines of code will do. So, in contrast to other programming projects, in which you spent hours writing code just to see the project die because of the smallest typo, this book helps you attain something significant without much typing at all.

To help you absorb the concepts, this book uses the following conventions:

Text that you're meant to type just as it appears in the book is in bold . The exception is when you're working through a step list: Because each step is bold, the text to type is not bold.
Words for you to type that are also in italics are meant as placeholders; you need to replace them with something that works for you. For example, if you see "Type Your Name and press Enter," you need to replace Your Name with your actual name.
I also use italics for terms I define. This means that you don't have to rely on other sources to provide the definitions you need.
Web addresses and programming code appear in monofont . If you're reading a digital version of this book on a device connected to the Internet, you can click the live link to visit a website, like this: .
When you need to click command sequences, you see them separated by a special arrow, like this: FileNew File, which tells you to click File and then New File. Foolish Assumptions

You might have a hard time believing that I've assumed anything about you - after all, I haven't even met you yet! Although mos
