Creating Your Own EC2 Workstation in the AWS Console
In this live AWS environment you will create your own EC2 workstation in the AWS console. This will be a useful skill whenever you find yourself working in an AWS environment. Not only will you learn some of the nuances of creating EC2 instances through this process, you'll also be able to do this again in your own AWS environment to create your own AWS workstation that is free from the clutter of a local machine.
By the end of this Learning Activity, we will have created our own EC2 instance and signed into it with an SSH key. We will also have used that instance to create an S3 Bucket in our AWS account and used the instance to have the Simple Notification Service send us a text message.
