Hands on with AWS CloudFormation Templates

  • July 14, 2014 · 6:00 PM

A short presentation on what AWS CloudFormation is and then lets do some hands on creating some templates.

AWS CloudFormation gives developers and systems administrators an easy way to create and manage a collection of related AWS resources, provisioning and updating them in an orderly and predictable fashion. 

https://aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/ 

Creating and explain what a template that contains:

• Elastic load balancer 

• Auto scaling group 

• Launch config 

• EC2 instance with user data to turn on a simple webserver to show functionality 

At the end of this template you should be able to goto the Elastic load balancer's IP address and view a webpage.  This will all be created with one simple CloudFormation template.
