Setup Cloud9

This wokshop uses Cloud9 as a web-based IDE to ensure a consistent experience.

We’ll use Cloud9 to run our own AMI and create a Parallel Cluster to run our apps on.

Only complete this section if you are running the workshop on your own. If you are at an AWS hosted event (such as re:Invent, Kubecon, Immersion Day, etc) ask for the correct link.

Prepare for CleanUp

In order to be able to clean up after the workshop is done, we will tag every resource with a tag aws-workshop and no value. This will allow us to filter for those resources and remove them safely.
