******* Course Overview *******
Welcome to this Amazing course on AWS CloudFormation Simplified. We will learn by practically implementing all the CloudFormation concepts with multiple examples.
AWS CloudFormation is a core Service in AWS which allows us to automate the Infrastructure and Application Deployments. We can achieve Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery and Infrastructure as Code when using AWS CloudFormation in combination with AWS Developer Tools like AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeDeploy and AWS CodePipeline.
There are two parts to this course.
In the first part of the course you will learn all the AWS CloudFormation concepts by practically implementing them. Below are the sections for part one.
Part-1: AWS CloudFormation
01. Introduction to CloudFormation
02. YAML Essentials
03. Stack Features
10. EC2 UserData
11. Metadata cfn-init & Helper Scripts (cfn-init, cfn-signal and cfn-hup)
12. Metadata cfn-init – Config Sets
13. Nested Stacks
In the second part of the course, you will implement the below listed three concepts using AWS CloudFormation & AWS Management Console. You will write cloud formation templates for AWS Developer tools (AWS CodeCommit, CodeBuild, CodeDeploy & CodePipeline) to implement the CI, CD and IAC.
01. Continuous Integration (CI)
02. Continuous Delivery (CD)
03. Infrastructure as Code (IAC)
Part-2: AWS Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery and Infrastructure as Code using AWS CloudFormation & AWS Management Console
14. Continuous Integration & Continuous Delivery using CloudFormation
15. Infrastructure as Code using CloudFormation
During the learning process, you will write 45+ cloud formation templates written in YAML.
This course also provides 45+ pre-built templates which you can use them during the learning process. In addition this course comes with 190 slides in a PDF document.
Each of my courses come with
- Amazing Hands-on Step By Step Learning Experiences
- Real Implementation Experience
- Friendly Support in the Q&A section
- 30 Day “No Questions Asked” Money Back Guarantee!
