There are several ways you could complete this workshop:

  • At an AWS event where the account is provided for you
  • In your own AWS account
  • Using your own local Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
  • Using a Cloud9 IDE provided by AWS

This workshop will assume you are either using your own account or one provided by AWS. It also assumes you are using a Cloud9 IDE, this ensures that the workshop can be tested on the same infrastructure as the user.

If you choose to use your own IDE, you should set up credentials to enable you to run the Boto3 SDK scripts.

Wherever possible AWS infrastructure, which is part of the free tier, has been used.
