30 Days of AWS (Day 1)

Hello everybody that is following this crazy adventure, I really appreciate it.

Today I was exploring What's IAM in AWS. Although I already knew about it was pretty awesome to study again. I watched all the section about this topic in the course that I'm doing on Linux Academy, besides reading the official docs.

Topics Covered today in my hour and a half studying

  1. What's IAM service (From the official docs): AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a web service that helps you securely control access to AWS resources. You use IAM to control who is authenticated (signed in) and authorized (has permissions) to use resources. If you wanna learn more about press here

  2. IAM Initial setup and configuration: this part I was already done when I created my AWS account. Basically here I was covering the 5 steps that should have complete to keep your account secured.IAM Initial setup

  3. Creating IAM users and policies: Here I was practising about how to create users and policies.

  4. Creating IAM groups and policies: So here I was practising creating different groups and add policies to these groups.

  5. Doing the Quiz: At the end of the topic they have a quiz that you can take buying it with gems, I spent 7 gems and I got 80% / 100% So I think that today was a productive day

Today Exam

So, this is the end of this day, Tomorrow I will continue with this course AWS Essentials.

Thanks for reading.
