[Lab] Setting Up the AWS Environment for Working with DynamoDB

DynamoDB is an AWS service and hence you need to have an AWS account setup first. For setting up AWS account and basic configurations within AWS, please refer to getting-started-with-aws-part-1-iam-and-storage-services. Better use a dedicated user account for this section, or cleanup everything before and after the section. Next you will need to do some configurations within your system, and some of these steps might be specific to your OS (OSX, Windows, Linux etc.).
