Given that Cloud9 is now part of Amazon’s AWS platform, the tutorial videos are outdated. I’ve managed to figure things out for the most part, but not with any level of confidence. Here are my questions:
Amazon has a few new options to choose from when creating a new environment that I don’t understand. I also selected the “free” tier upon signing up, but apparently they can still bill me. What options should I choose to get the challenges to work and also avoid getting billed?
AWS Cloud9 is constantly telling me to use an “IAM user” instead of the “root account”. Does this matter given that I’m only using AWS for these challenges?
I’ve managed to get through the “how-to-npm” and “learnyounode” challenges, but I keep getting “file not found” and “no such directory” errors when I try to install “expressworks” in AWS cloud9. I’ve tried the installation link provided on the challenge page and also tried just installing it normally. Nothing seems to work. Thoughts?
Should I just ditch AWS and run these challenges natively on my pc?
Thanks for the help!
