Here’s a curious fact of modern computing. For those who have grown up with modern interfaces such as Windows 10 and Apple iOS 11, the idea of a “command line interface” is a bit peculiar. We’re so accustomed to seeing, clicking, and executing that any kind of textual interface (other than actually texting on a phone) is lost on large masses of people.

That’s not true when it comes to cloud computing services, such as Amazon Web Services and the Command Line Interface (or AWS CLI). In fact, for anyone who has worked in a data center, is comfortable with Linux, creates web applications, or remembers the early days of MS-DOS, a command line is not a crippled, old school system but rather a powerful way to control and execute commands.
