If you are running this workshop at an AWS event, please access your temporary AWS Account by connecting to the AWS Workshop Portal and entering your participant hash. Otherwise, continue with the steps below.

  1. To access the AWS Console, log in to your AWS Account.

  2. At the top right hand corner of your screen, select the US East (N. Virginia) us-east-1 region to work in during this lab.
