To get started at an AWS event where the Event Engine is being used

  2. Enter the team hash code that you were provided and click Proceed..
  3. Click AWS Console.
  4. Click Open Console.
  5. Make sure you are in the correct region.
  6. Click here to proceed to the RDS Phase.

Click here if you're not using AWS Event Engine or are using your own account

To setup the workshop environment, make sure you are logged in as an admin user and launch the CloudFormation stack below in the preferred AWS region using the "Deploy to AWS" links below. This will automatically take you to the console to run the template. In order to complete these workshops, you'll need a valid, usable AWS Account. Use a personal account or create a new AWS account to ensure you have the necessary access and that you do not accidentally modify corporate resources. Do not use a production AWS account from the company you work for. We strongly recommend that you use a non-production AWS account for this workshop such as a training, sandbox or personal account. If multiple participants are sharing a single account you should use unique names for the stack set and resources created in the console.
