Join Jonathan Fernandes for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up an AWS account, part of AWS Machine Learning by Example.
- [Instructor] So let's set up an AWS account if you don't have one. I select My Account, select AWS Management Console, and select Create a new AWS account. I then need to enter my email address, a password, confirm my password, and enter my account name. And select Continue. I then want to select that the account type is personal. I need to enter my phone number. I select which country I'm based in, my address, city, state and my postal code.
I then need to check the box to confirm that I've read the terms and conditions. And I select Create Account and Continue. I then need to enter my credit card details, the expiration date and my name. And I've had to provide my phone number because I am going to get a phone verification. I then enter my security check, so the digits that I see, and then I select Call Me Now. I'll then get a call from AWS, and I need to enter the four digit number that I have on the screen on my phone keypad.
So my identity has been verified successfully. I select Continue. I then select the free basic plan. And I am now in a position to sign into my console. So I select Sign into Console. I enter the email address that I've just registered with and the password, click Sign In. And you can see that I'm now in the AWS console. And depending on where you are located, you want to pick either North Virginia or EU Island for any machine learning work.
