Trainings and resources to learn and make better use of CloudFormation.
AWS CloudFormation is a service in AWS that provides an easy way to build a collection of AWS resources and services, deploy them consistently and efficiently, and manage them from initiation to deletion.
CloudFormation uses templates to describe the resources and their dependencies so they can be deployed together in what is called a stack. With a CloudFormation template you can create, update, and delete all the resources listed in a stack as a unit. This provides a better more consistent mechanism for managing resources together instead of individually.
Here is a list of recommended training materials to get started with using CloudFormation to manage your resources in AWS.
