CloudFormation is at the top of the list of essential AWS tools.

CloudFormation is an AWS service that allows you to describe and provision your AWS infrastructure using a simple text file. These text files, or templates, act as the single source of truth for your infrastructure and are important “infrastructure as code” artifacts.

Large companies all across the country are using CloudFormation like Expedia, Balsamiq, and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

During this event, you will learn what CloudFormation is, why you want to use CloudFormation, common use cases, and you get to write your first CloudFormation template. Bonus, if time allows, we will talk about Service Catalog.
