Alrighty, our template is complete! Now that it's ready, we're going to relaunch our template. In fact, we're going to do it twice: once just so we can see the changes we've made throughout the series and then again so we can discuss Change Sets so you don't delete/modify something in the future without meaning to.
We'll go through the launching process step-by-step in the AWS console, deal with a few errors just as you would in a real world setting (There's always a typo, right?), and see how you can check in on all the new parts of your template inside the console after it has successfully launched. And last we'll do that extra update so we can touch on what Change Sets are and how to use them to make sure each update is only going to do exactly what you want it to.
In our next and final post of the series, we will talk about the best next steps for your CloudFormation journey, including where to go and what to do with the fundamentals now under your belt.
What Are We Doing?
In the second-to-last video, we will do a complete relaunch of our AWS CloudFormation template, going through the process step-by-step and handling errors as we would in the real world. We will also discuss Change Sets and how they're a great way to make sure CloudFormation is going to do exactly what you want with your template.
