Introduction to Amazon Web Services

Date: 01/26/2022
Time: 10:00 am PST - 12:00 pm PST

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 certifications or attendance records will be kept for this workshop and there is no plan to record this interactive workshop.


Dr. Rayna Harris (UC Davis/Common Fund Data Ecosystem)


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.
