Join Arun Gupta for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Firecracker First Look.
- [Instructor] In order to participate in the hands-on portion of this course, you need to know a few things. Well, first of all, you need to know how to create an AWS account, so go to the URL shown over here. Make sure you create an account that has a credit card applied to it because the kind of instances that we're going to be creating are not available as part of a free account. Then, you should know how to create an EC2 instance on AWS Cloud. This could be done either using AWS Console or using the AWS CLI. The instructions for that, again, are shown in the URL over here.
And last but not the least, once you have created the EC2 instance, then you need a GitHub repo because the instructions to get started with Firecracker are over there, so you should be able to copy-paste the commands from your browser to this instance and then it should just commence.
