AWS Cloud9

  1. AWS Cloud9 is an integrated development environment or IDE.

  2. The AWS Cloud9 IDE offers a rich code-editing experience with support for several programming languages and runtime debuggers. It also has a built-in terminal with a preconfigured CLI.

  3. It contains a collection of tools that you use to code, build, run, test, and debug software.

How does AWS Cloud9 Work?

  1. We use the AWS Cloud9 IDE, running in a web browser on your local computer, to interact with your AWS Cloud9 environment.

  2. A computing resource like an EC2 Instance or our own server connects to that environment.

  3. Our work is stored in an AWS CodeCommit repository or another type of remote repository.
