Demo: Deploying an Infrastructure Using AWS CloudFormation

Learn to use CloudFormation templates to deploy AWS services.

AWS Cloud9 is a cloud-based IDE provided by Amazon that lets us run and debug our application code from the browser. As we create a Cloud9 environment, AWS provisions an EC2 instance that provides the IDE’s computing power. Behind the scenes, Cloud9 uses the CloudFormation template in provisioning and securing this instance. Let’s launch the AWS Console and see things in action.
