  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Development, and then choose IDEs.

  3. In the Create AWS RoboMaker development environment page, type a name for the environment.

  4. For Instance type, choose an instance type with the amount of RAM and vCPUs you think you need for the kinds of tasks you want to do. Or leave the default choice.

    Note

    Choosing instance types with more RAM and vCPUs might result in additional charges to your AWS account for Amazon EC2.

  5. Optional: In Networking, if your development environment needs to access resources on an Amazon VPC, select the VPC and subnets.

  6. Choose Submit to create the development environment. After you choose Submit, you are taken to the Environment details page.

  7. On the Environment details page, choose Open environment. It might take a few moments to prepare the environment.
