A Hands-On Introduction to Amazon Web Services

Friday, Jan 29, from 11:00am-1:00pm PST.
Instructors: Abhijna Parigi and Jose Sanchez


This free 2 hour hands on tutorial will introduce you to creating a computer "in the cloud" and logging into it, via Amazon Web Services. We'll create a small general-purpose Linux computer connect to it, and run a small job, while discussing the concepts and technologies involved.

Participants should plan to fill out a brief survey before and after the workshop.


No prior experience with cloud computing is needed, although you should have some minimal experience with command-line computing via (e.g.) bash.

You don't need an AWS account or a credit card to attend.

Who is offering this?

This workshop is a pilot workshop offered by the Lab for Data Intensive Biology as part of the NIH Common Fund Data Ecosystem training and engagement program.
