AWS Command Line Interface (CLI)#
The AWS CLI is used for sending commands to AWS, just as you would via the web console, but instead of using the web browser you use a terminal/console, and you type the commands instead of using a UI to interact with services.
I recommend getting the AWS CLI tools installed now so that you can easily follow along later on.
AWS has excellent instruction for installing the command line tools. I won't repeat them here.
Please review the following page: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/getting-started-install.html
The three sections you can expand: Linux, macOS, and Windows. Select your operating system and follow the instructions. When you're done, you're ready to follow along later on in the course.
