First login to the AWS Console using the steps given in Account Setup. If you are running this tutorial on your own (not in an AWS run event), you’ll need to login to the AWS Management Console at this point.
First we’re taken to the AWS Console homepage. For the sake of this tutorial we’re using the N. Virginia (us-east-1) region. Confirm that aligns with the region shown in the upper right hand corner.
Next navigate to the Cloud9 Console by searching for Cloud9 in the search bar, or choose Services, then Cloud9.

Your AWS Cloud9 instance will be ready in a few minutes!
Now is a perfect time to grab a cup of ☕️
