This video is step 1 in a series of 5 videos that show how to set up a Windows virtual machine (instance) using Amazon Web Services and then provision it with Python and R (and some additional software) so that it can serve as a platform for doing some data science. In this video I discuss setting up an Amazon Web Services account, using the “Free Tier” services, and setting up a billing alert.
The video is about 11 minutes long.
- The choices that show up in the billing alert notification menu have changed (about time 9:30 in the video). Instead of seeing and selecting the account owner’s name (in my case George), you should select Notify Me.
