AWS Automation Options

Topic: Introduction

This course will provide guidance on the various native options that can be used to script and deploy AWS resources. The course will cover a number of options from the easiest (Elastic Beanstalk) to the most complex (CloudFormation). AWS Opsworks and the CLI will also be covered and a brief introduction to Opscode Chef will also be included as an alternative to native CloudFormation. The course will be somewhat detailed but should allow the viewer to follow along so that he/she can create their own resources.
