There will be a Cloud9 environment available, click the Open button to launch the IDE:
Once the IDE has loaded, we recommend you use the + button and select New Terminal to open a new full screen terminal window.
This will open a new tab with a fresh terminal.
You may also close the small terminal at the bottom if you wish.
Your IDE comes pre-configured to access the workshop EKS cluster and also provides a set of tools you will need like the
kubectl CLI tools.
For example, run the following command to get details about your EKS cluster:
You can also check that you can connect to your EKS cluster like so:
