Did you know that Identity and Access Management (IAM) is used by 100% of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Users? Also, did you know that IAM for AWS can provide service level access to users both inside and outside of your network?
My name is Alston Godbolt, and I’ll be your instructor. This course is important to me because it provides me an opportunity to share my knowledge and teaching approach with you, the student. I have over five years of teaching adult students, and mentoring instructors. In addition, I am both an AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate and a Certified Developer Associate. Finally, I am a Full Stack Developer working with a number of AWS Services daily. This combination of knowledge and experience makes me well suited to lead you through the wonderful world of Identity and Access Management.
This course is designed for both beginners to AWS and experienced developers. First, after a brief course introduction, we will dive into what AWS provides to its customers. Next, we will take a detailed look at the four major components of IAM: Users, Groups, Roles, and Policies. Each component will feature a definition, a short description, use cases, and a hands-on tutorial.
By the end of this course you’ll be able to identify the right component based on needs, define and discuss: Users, Roles, Groups, and Policies. And Create each of the four components in the AWS management console.
This course takes a no fluff, no filler approach to learning IAM. We will not spend any time discussing any other service outside of IAM.
Thank you, and I’ll see you in the course
