Finally, you’ll learn how to detect infrastructure configuration drift within your organization. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge about CloudFormation Stacks needed to automate your infrastructure deployments in a repeatable fashion.
Course Overview Hey, everyone. My name is Andrew Estes, and welcome to my course, Updating Stacks with AWS CloudFormation. I am an enterprise architect and founder of QuickToCloud. Infrastructure as Code is an ever growing part of the public cloud, and it's important that you understand how you can manage, update, and remove architecture resources as needed via automation. In this course, we're going to use several AWS provided techniques to help us manage our CloudFormation stacks more efficiently. Some of the major topics we're going to cover include direct updates and change sets, implementing stack policies, drift detection, and migrating stack resources. By the end of this course, you'll know how to best update and manage your own CloudFormation stacks specific to your workload. Before beginning, you should be familiar with some CloudFormation fundamentals, such as syntax options and basic stack concepts. So I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to easily update your CloudFormation stacks with the Updating Stacks with AWS CloudFormation, course here at Pluralsight.
