Create a DynamoDB Table Using CloudFormation

In this lab scenario, Alfredo of Alfredo's Pizza is building a web application to manage his supply and food inventory. He's looking for help to provision his database infrastructure, which will hold his data. You'll use CloudFormation to write the desired state of the infrastructure using code, which includes a DynamoDB table to hold inventory items. You’ll first launch the resources in his development environment, but the template can later be used to launch a stack in the test and production environments as well. By the end of this lab, you'll have a good understanding of infrastructure as code using CloudFormation.
