Getting Your Dev Setup: How To Run Your Code

Many of you have asked for help moving forward from code lessons, like code academy, or code school. You want to know how to run your code on a server, and that means you need to setup a server, install libraries, install RSA keys, and your code. Perhaps this is all a bit overwhelming to you. I will guide you through it in a four hour session. I'll guide you to: 

1.  Signup for an Amazon [the same Amazon that sells shoes and music :)] Web Services (free account), 

2. Create a virtual server in the Amazon AWS cloud,

3. Point a domain name to that server, i.e. www.myawesomesite.com

4. SSH into that server (using the command line)

5. Install necessary libraries, and update the server

6. Download/Install your code on the server

7. Configure the firewall to allow web traffic

8. Start your server/code/website

This is a vital guide if you actually plan to deploy your work to the world.

    Brian and Barbara are first class. Super-engaging. We started covering the basics (always important) to then building on that foundation and moving up from there. I learned a lot and want to learn a lot more. I look forward to more classes.

    Wohoo! It was cool to get a site up and running from an open source project. Feeling more confident about command line and AWS!
