AWS as a sandbox

In this day and age code samples seem to be all the rage. I just looked at the free tier for AWS and I think it works out to just over a month for the t2.micro instance. I've never used AWS before let alone deployed a Java application to it nor do I know what the usage of one person would be.

So in short cost is my main concern.

If one was to go through the AWS in Action book would the free instance be enough?

Is it sufficient to have a site where your example code could be deployed thus showing the ability to code as well as use AWS?

Thanks for your question Matt.

We tried to built all examples in the book based on the Free Tier. This was possible for 90% of our examples. Nonetheless, there is a special warning message in our book whenever an example will occur costs.
