My Emacs based live-scripting approach can be used to explore AWS technology. I have demonstrated this with an example of a basic EC2 lab.
In this lab, I set up a simple EC2 instance with the command line interface. I use the EC2 “user data” to set up an Apache Web server, and I initialize the index page with meta-data of this instance.
The following diagram gives an overview of this lab.
The documentation and a code are stored in my project aws-labs on GitHub. If you have Emacs configured for live-scripting, this lab can be setup in less then five minutes, which is impressive. You can learn more about the live-scripting approach on my project live-scripting on GitHub.
