In Detail

AWS CloudFormation is the best way to write, deploy, and maintain your AWS infrastructure and supports most of the AWS services, and is the safest way to make your AWS infrastructure evolve over time. This course is an excellent course on AWS CloudFormation that covers almost everything.

The course starts with an introduction to AWS CloudFormation, explaining the advantages and high-level concepts of CloudFormation. Next, you will write your first AWS CloudFormation template in YAML to create an AWS S3 bucket. Moving along, you will become familiar with the CloudFormation parameters and resources, and learn how to use mapping to infer pre-defined values based on the AWS environment type. Next, you will work with outputs and conditions, and learn techniques to enhance the usability of the CloudFormation template using Metadata. Later, you will configure the resources and create re-usable pieces of code across the CloudFormation stacks. Towards the end, you will take a step ahead in CloudFormation by learning advanced concepts, such as troposphere and deletion policy.

By the end of this course, you will become well-versed with the concepts needed to write and launch productive CloudFormation templates using YAML.
