We generally tend to avoid paying for things unless we actually need them, and the same goes for AWS

When using a cloud provider like AWS sometimes an unexpected charge may occur and we'd like to understand what are we being charged for and how to be notified whenever an unexpected charge occurs (especially when we're trying to stay within a free tier).

In this quick (4 minutes, 2 lessons) collection we're going to learn how to:

  • Review the AWS Billing & Cost Management Dashboard
  • Set up a billing alarm to be notified whenever our bill is larger than $5
  • Review the AWS bill to understand how much are we going to pay this month and why
