This news release is provided by base2Services on the 11 October 2018

It was great to see two of our R&D team, Angus Vine and Nikola Tosic, be asked to host a developer workshop at the Melbourne AWS Programming & Tools Meetup.

Held on the 10th of October, the workshop focussed on how to build a CloudFormation managed VPC, with a bastion host and ECS cluster, using Cfhighlander. In addition attendees learnt how to deploy nginx containers into ECS clusters using CloudFormation.

Angus & Nikola are co-contributors to Cfhighlander, a feature rich tool & DSL for infrastructure coders that came out of the base2Services R&D lab. At this workshop they demonstrated how Cfhighlander‘s existing component library can be used to produce reusable CloudFormation templates for managing AWS resources in a modular way.

The workshop was well attended, with most attendees either new to AWS or with a basic background on CloudFormation. The feedback for the workshop and Cfhighlander was extremely positive.
