You already know that AWS CloudFormation is a powerful tool for provisioning and managing your AWS infrastructure, but did you know that it can also provision and manage resources outside of AWS? Did you know that CloudFormation can fully bootstrap your EC2 instances, securely download data from S3, and even supports Mustache templates? In this session you will go on a deep dive, touring of some of CloudFormation’s most advanced features with a member of the team that built the service. Explore custom resources, cfn-init, S3 authentication, and Mustache templates in a series of technical demos with code samples available for download afterwards.
