Create a Workspace

The Cloud9 workspace should be built by an IAM user with Administrator privileges, not the root account user. Please ensure you are logged in as an IAM user, not the root account user.

Ad blockers, javascript disablers, and tracking blockers should be disabled for the cloud9 domain, or connecting to the workspace might be impacted. Cloud9 requires third-party-cookies. You can whitelist the specific domains.

Launch Cloud9 in your closest region:

  • Go to Cloud9 Console

  • Select the region where you will be running this workshop from the Top menu in case no region is selected by default.

  • Select Create environment

  • Name it airflow-workshop, and select Next Step

  • Stick with the default settings, and select Next Step

  • Lastly, select Create Environment

  • When it comes up, customize the environment by closing the welcome tab and lower work area, and opening a new terminal tab in the main work area: c9before

  • Your workspace should now look like this: c9after

  • If you like this theme, you can choose it yourself by selecting View / Themes / Solarized / Solarized Dark in the Cloud9 workspace menu.
