Blog Migrated to AWS!

Alright, will have to see how this goes. Migrated my WordPress blog onto my own server in AWS. The migration wasn’t a completely smooth as the template isn’t 100% the same. Will definitely be tweaking my custom CSS to get everything right; but this is why I did it. Best way for me to learn is to start playing around with things. Just hope this doesn’t all blow up on me somehow. I’ll keep my WordPress.com page up as a backup; but will start pointing everyone here.

AWS Development and School

Something I never really setup has has been a personal page where I can share my achievements in the chance it comes in handy. Figuring that with this blog, my current class, and my AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate and AWS Certified Developer – Associate certificates, this is as good of a place as any to start showing off what I know.

Something I plan on trying to do throughout my current course is to share the sites I build in each lab and the progress I make on my course project.

I’ll save uploading the current weeks lab until the next week. Regrding the course project, I’ll try to keep this updated as I work on it. Please keep in mind, everything is still a work in progress.

Assuming I can get some spare time, my eventual goal will be to move this blog onto my own EC2 instance in AWS. I already have one running, just need the time to play around with server to get everthing ready.

 

First Simple Website Done!

Finished with my first lab by creating a basic four page website that I can essentially use as a online resume that I can continuously update. The page is extremely basic, but was really nice to see it come together nevertheless. Still know there is a lot more that I can do to make the site far more interesting, but a nice start.

Only because I haven’t tried this out yet, I’m considering setting this site up in AWS as a static website on an S3 bucket. Current workload has me a bit strapped for time, so this may be a bit before I do. Once I get it loaded, I’ll share it out in case anyone wants to take a look.
