Program Overview

Infrastructure as Code (IAC) is a practice that involves managing and provisioning infrastructure resources using machine-readable files, rather than manually configuring them. AWS CloudFormation is a service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that allows you to create and manage AWS resources using declarative JSON or YAML templates.

With AWS CloudFormation, you can define the desired state of your infrastructure in a template file and then use CloudFormation to create, update, and delete the corresponding resources. AWS CloudFormation simplifies and automates the management of AWS resources by leveraging IAC principles, enabling your team to create, update, and delete infrastructure in a consistent and repeatable manner.
