    It really depends on what it is that you are trying to automate. There are a few great orchestrators out there if that is what you are looking to do. If it's just straight automation then Chef is usually a solid choice to start with.

    Really depend son what you're trying to automate.

    To at least start, I'd try to use the CLI for as much as possible. There's the AWS CLI in *nix and I think there's a Powershell equivalent. Once you get the hang of the CLI, you'll start to understand the API endpoints and IAM better. Then you can hop into any of the various SDKs.

    Do you have any example tasks you're looking to automate? Examples might be the best way for us to give relevant answers.
