Setup Scripts


For these steps, you need to be back in the AWS Cloud9 IDE.

1. Clone the workshop scripts

First, we need to get some scripts that will automate the workshop setup.

cd ~
git clone

2. Install workshop tools

Run these commands to call the script that will upgrade the AWS CLI to version 2 and install a JSON parsing utility called jq.

cd ~/modernize-workshop-setup/aws

When this is complete, you should see a message like this. Verify you see aws-cli/2.x.y in the output

Installing workshop tools COMPLETE
jq  --version: jq-1.5
aws --version: aws-cli/2.0.17 Python/3.7.3 Linux/4.14.177-107.254.amzn1.x86_64 botocore/2.0.0dev21

If the version is not 2.x, DO NOT PROCEED. Go back and confirm the steps on this page.
