You will use the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) as well as
eksctl for these exercises. Detailed documentation on installing the AWS CLI is available on AWS Documentation as well as a Getting started with
eksctl guide that details installation steps for Linux and Windows. These examples will be based on macOS. Sample code, templates, and other resources are provided in a Git repository that accompanies this workshop. You are encouraged to
clone or fork this repository as we will reference that content throughout these exercises.
From your terminal, let's verify that the AWS CLI is installed:
If you don't already have it, install Homebrew then install
brew tap weaveworks/tap && \brew update && \brew install weaveworks/tap/eksctl
Now, let's validate that the installation was successful.
You are now ready to create your Amazon EKS cluster and worker nodes!
