The AWS cloud is a great platform for nearly any compute workload, but the browser console isn't ideal for serious admin work. That's where the scriptable goodness of the AWS CLI rules. Automating AWS Operations with the AWS CLI can teach you how.

There isn't much AWS resource management you can't perform from the AWS browser console, but it's definitely not ideal for heavy-duty, day-to-day infrastructure operations. Want to learn how to get all your administration work done while using far less time and energy? You'll need to get your mind around the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). In this course, Automating AWS Operations with the AWS CLI, you'll learn how to harness the full power of the AWS CLI from the comfort of your local PC. First, you'll see how to install and securely configure the CLI on any operating system. Next, you'll explore the CLI's command syntax patterns and the helpful tools you'll need to figure out how to get the results you need. Finally, you'll see the CLI in action as you manage your AWS account and build sophisticated deployments - all from the command line. When you're finished with the course, you'll have the necessary skills you'll need to quickly find and apply the CLI tools to perform any AWS-related task.
