Ruby to S3, an introduction guide to its AWS SDK

And finally we land into the world of Ruby, which has one of the most richest and finest SDKs when it comes to AWS.

This tutorial is based on Ubuntu WSL, the subshell for the Redmond’s OS, and you can download it easily from the Microsoft store.

Although recommended for the purposes of this guide, I think you can make it even if you are on a vanilla Ubuntu installation or virtual machine.

The Ruby programming language

The first thing is to install Ruby on WSL, I chose RVM to install and manage different versions of the language on the same operating system. Once you’re logged on WSL, issue the following commands, and everything should work fine:

Node.js to AWS S3, my introduction guide to the SDK

Dynamic languages may seem to be error prone in some ways because they often don’t have something like a compile time check and so on.

Take the case of Node.js, it has a high level of abstraction (you don’t have to face the bare metal of your machine) and its simplicity and conciseness of syntax allow us to write a lot less code.

The JavaScript programming language

Verbose code like the one written in Java leaves not doubt about what the program intends to do yes, but it can be tiring to write or even to read; although many IDEs can help with their autocomplete.

The Java programming language

This tutorial is based on Intellij Idea, a super smart IDE that contains a lot of features and useful stuff that can make life easier for all of you, even if you are an experienced one.
