In this step, you will prepare the environment on your own AWS account or a temporary AWS Account to run the various workshops. Specifically, you will:

  • Sign in to the AWS Management Console and explore it.
  • Create AWS Cloud9 environment, a cloud based IDE.
  • Upgrade AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI).
  • Resize the AWS Cloud9 root volume to build Docker container images.
  • Look at AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) and attach an IAM role to an EC2 instance.
