Scientific Computing on AWS 1 of 4
Amazon Web Service (AWS) is a very powerful cloud computing platform powering not only Amazon, but also many other web services across the globe. Scientists are now embracing the massive computing capacity of AWS to perform innovative scientific computing.
In this Mini Course, we will introduce the basic concepts in AWS, and run interesting programs in the cloud through hands-on tutorials. By the end of this course, you will acquire a basic understanding of AWS sufficient to develop and deploy your own scientific applications.
The first version of this lecture was given at the The University of Tokyo in the summer of 2021. The course material is available here: https://tomomano.github.io/learn-aws-by-coding/. Right now it is written in Japanese, but the whole document will be translated into English by the time of the lecture. The course will be taught in English.
We will sign up for the AWS Educate program, which will provide us AWS credits ($50 per attendee) to use on AWS for free.
The course requires basic knowledge of Python programming language. In addition, basic understanding of Linux command line is desired to run the hands-on tutorials.
No prior knowledge in cloud computing is needed, but if you know how to use Deigo that will help.
