As an aspiring AWS developer, a knowledge of the concept of Configuration as Code and the services that enable it on AWS is essential. In this course, you'll define Configuration as Code and outline the services that enable its use on AWS, including OpsWorks, Elastic Container Service (ECS), Elastic Container Registry (ECR), and Fargate. You'll explore how to use these services for several tasks, including stacks and application management and the packaging and deployment of applications. Next, you'll identify the purpose of Docker containers and how to use them for various tasks, and how to apply load balancing to an existing ECS service on AWS. Finally, you'll create and configure ECS clusters, install Docker for Windows, and integrate the AWS X-Ray monitoring service with ECS.
