When starting with the cloud, the management console is the first stop to provision, update and manage resources. However, the management console is not the only way to interact with AWS services. Besides the graphical user interface (GUI), you can also interact with AWS programmatically. For automation, interacting with the AWS API is most advisable because every action in AWS is an API call.

A static website is a web page with unchanging contents. The website consists of fixed items and is accessible by end-users. Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is an object storage service that stores data as objects within buckets. An object is a file and any metadata that describes the file.

However, the root user is a highly privileged account with unlimited access to all AWS resources; therefore, AWS recommends not using it for daily activities. Instead, we will set up an Identity and Access Management (IAM) user account for these activities.
One of my goals for this year was to learn a different cloud platform asides from Microsoft Azure. Amazon Web Service (AWS) is the world’s largest cloud service provider, and it felt like the best choice. In this article, we will set up a new AWS account using the free tier and also configure a […]
