Create State Machine

Learn how to create AWS Step functions state machine.

As we already know the theory behind the AWS Step Functions, let's now learn how to create our first state machine within the AWS Console. We'll build it from scratch using the AWS Management Console's AWS Step Functions with a couple of approaches, including the Workflow Studio.

Previously, creating a state machine was only possible through the Amazon States Language. However, AWS now provides Workflow Studio, a visual tool that allows us to design workflows using a drag-and-drop interface. We will also build it from the templates provided by AWS.
