This hands-on, instructor-led lab will use the AWS Management Console to deploy a new workload, and set up estate and patch management. In this lab we will demonstrate the importance of tagging and the ways in which it can support you operations activities. You will leverage the benefits of infrastructure as code for development and deployment of your environment. You will also perform Operations as Code to gain insights to your workload status, and to maintain your environment.
