AWS Cloud9 is a cloud-based integrated development environment (IDE) that Let’s you write, run, and debug your code with just a browser. It includes a code editor, debugger, and terminal. Cloud9 comes prepackaged with essential tools for popular programming languages, including JavaScript, Python, PHP, and more, so you don’t need to install files or configure your development machine to start new projects.

Add a new Cloud9 IDE environment

1 . Within the AWS console, use the region drop list to select us-west-2 (Oregon). We are doing this because the workshop script will provsion the resources in this same region.


2 . Navigate to the cloud9 console or just search for it under the AWS console services menu.


3 . Click the Create environment button


4 . For the name use pulumi-workshop

5 . Select Other instance type and choose t3.medium

6 . Leave all the other settings as default


This will take about 1-2 minutes to provision

Configure Cloud9 IDE environment

When the environment comes up, customize the environment by:

1 . Close the welcome page tab

2 . Close the lower work area tab

3 . Open a new terminal tab in the main work area.


Your workspace should now look like this and can hide the left hand environment explorer by clicking on the left side environment tab.


If you don’t like this dark theme, you can change it from the View / Themes Cloud9 workspace menu.
