Create Users and Manage Permissions Using Groups and Policies in IAM

**Note:** There have been UI changes to the IAM dashboard. Please keep this in mind as you are going through this lab. ___ Hello, Gurus! In this lab scenario, Alfredo of Alfredo's Pizza has hired you as a security engineer for his web app that allows customers to order pizzas online. He's ramped up his development team by hiring four new people. He needs our help with giving this team the proper access permissions. In order to provide access and ensure the proper security measures are in place, you will use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). You will group users and assign permissions for the developer group using policies.
