AWS is a great platform for scripted control of your EC2 instances. See for information on command-line tools and SDKs for other languages, such as java, python, C++, and all the others needed for buzzword-compliance. Here is an example CLI script.

     # Note that these scripts rely on having 'StrictHostKeyChecking accept-new' in the ~/.ssh/config file.
     # For jq, a sort of sed for json data, see
     echo ""
     id=`aws ec2 describe-instances | jq --raw-output '.Reservations[0].Instances[0].InstanceId'`
     status=`aws ec2 describe-instances --instance-ids $id | jq --raw-output '.Reservations[0].Instances[0].State.Name'`
     if [ $status = "running" ]; then
         ip=`aws ec2 describe-instances --instance-ids $id | jq --raw-output '.Reservations[0].Instances[0].PublicIpAddress'`
         echo "instance-id: $id status: $status 'ubuntu@$ip'"
         echo "instance-id: $id status: $status"
     echo ""
     exit 0
