AWS PowerShell Automation: Management & Governance Services Tutorial FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

Is it worth it to learn PowerShell automation of AWS management and governance services?

Not everyone uses AWS management and governance services on a regular basis, and learning to automate services like CloudFormation or Control Tower could be overkill for people who don't use them often. But if you're reliably getting your hands dirty with even just one of AWS' tools for controlling and monitoring your cloud network, learning to automate them with PowerShell is worth it for how much time and effort it saves in the long run.

How difficult is it to learn to automate AWS management and governance services with PowerShell?

AWS has well over a dozen different apps, services and tools for helping manage and monitor your cloud network, and what makes learning to automate them difficult is all the moving pieces. First, you need a good understanding of the AWS services themselves. Second, a strong foundation in PowerShell command construction. Last, you also need to know the right way to connect them all together. This is a tutorial in all three aspects that gets you actually automating services quickly.

Who should learn how to automate AWS management and governance services?

Cloud engineers and architects are at the top of the list of ideal candidates for learning to automate AWS services. For DevOps professionals, PowerShell will be relatively easy to pick up, and they will know exactly what to do with the opportunities for automation and integration it affords. Even sysadmins or cloud administrators who are regularly deploying or managing EC2 instances will benefit from learning to automate their management with PowerShell.

Are there any certifications associated with this AWS automation course?

Although this tutorial isn't designed to prepare you for any specific AWS certification, the PowerShell knowledge and automation skills – to say nothing of the general familiarity with all the AWS management and governance services themselves – on it can help you with many of AWS' certifications. The AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate and Certified DevOps Engineer - Professional in particular will be easier after this course.

What's the best way to study how to use PowerShell in automating AWS management and governance services?

The best way to study automation is always with hands-on practice. You can't learn PowerShell without writing PowerShell scripts, and you can't learn AWS service automation without actually executing the commands. So the right way to learn is with a balance between video instruction that walks you through what you need to learn and virtual simulations where you practice PowerShell in a realistic AWS cloud environment.
