I had applied for the GitHub Student Developer Pack. I had $150 in credits for AWS. 😎
I decided to put this to good use. I have started exploring Amazon EC2, Amazon Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon EC2 Container Service. The aws-cli is really pretty awesome with the little use that I have done so far. As I go, I will keep updating this repo aws-scripts with the scripts I prepare. As this is just my testing with aws-cli scripts, these scripts will be hard coded and in general may not be usable anywhere else without a little tweaking.
I will keep blogging about my adventure, all my successes and failures as well.
