Welcome to the fifth(!) blog post in the AWS series. I know, we’ve learned so much by now, it’s exhausting! But don’t worry — as I mentioned in the subtitle, this is the last blog post about the various services! The next one is going to be about billing and pricing, and the last one is about best practices in the cloud.
We can do it! Don’t give up hope!
In previous blog posts, I mentioned that AWS services are dependent on each other, which makes it difficult to decide in which order to present them.
The big star of AWS, the one that all tutorials mention, is EC2, so we’ll start there. This will be fun!
Let’s see a funny meme and then jump right into it!
Welcome back! This is the third blog post in the series and you might be feeling a bit unmotivated. I get it, every blog post is long and we still have more to go.
Because I was sick of studying as well, I tried taking a practice test and completely failed the security part! So we are back here. It’s tricky to remember what does what, but do not worry — I’ll emphasize the differences between them!
Starting with AWS can be overwhelming, and the main reason for that is the number of services they offer! When you open the All Services tab, you see a long list and no indication of where to start!
Before we start, I need to say it loud and clear: I work for Amazon, but I have nothing to do with the AWS teams. I am a client of AWS services just like you, and I struggled to understand this wondrous world as well.
When I decided to start learning about it, I didn’t know what to focus on, or where to start tackling this huge monster. After watching dozens of videos and gaining some work experience, things started to click. In the upcoming blog posts, I’ll share my notes. …
It doesn’t matter what’s the programming language of your choice, nor which company you work for — you will use Git.
I volunteer in AliceCode and teach programming to teenage girls. Last month I introduced my group to Git, and after seeing them struggle, I noticed all the things a fresh beginner doesn’t understand (yet!)
In this blog post, we will learn the basic git commands and see them used ‘hands-on’. Hands-on means it involves active participation/usage and not just theory.
In contrast to other tutorials, it was important for me to show the flow of the communication with git…
One of my last tasks at work was adding “in-between” alarms to our system, and considering we already have alarms, it was supposed to be an easy one to complete. However, it turns out that the straight-forward solution doesn’t work in this case. Eventually, I found a tutorial with the correct solution and followed it, but I didn’t find it as beginner-friendly as I needed.
Therefore, after fully understanding, I created this tutorial. …
The year 2020 is over, and after many days of procrastination, I finally sat down to fill in a 2020 Global Tax Questionnaire I got. Sounds like a treat, I know. So I opened the link and the first question that I got was “Do you consider Israel as your home?”
The other day we had an online meeting at work where one of my colleagues, a man in his 50s, said proudly that he has around 150 followers on Instagram. He also mentioned that he doesn’t upload as much lately because the last several pictures he shared didn’t get many likes.
Social media is an emotional roller coaster. This man was excited to take and upload pictures, thrilled that he gained followers, disappointed that he doesn’t get enough engagement, and then sad with the decision not to upload anymore.
I don’t know how many times that man rode this roller…
The responses I received from my friends to “I’m about to interview Erez Sheiner for the blog” were as follows: People who didn’t know Erez wondered what does it have to do with “cup of code” and people who did know, were thrilled to see the final result.
Dr. Erez Sheiner is a lecturer in the math department of Bar Ilan University. He teaches in the CS (computer science) department as well, where he wins “best lecturer” almost every semester. Erez also has a successful youtube channel dedicated to math and a TikTok account! On Facebook, he is a top…
