Sample reference architecture

At the conclusion of this workshop, you will end up with various AWS services provisioned in your AWS account. The following diagram illustrates some of these services and is intended as a sample reference architecture.

Workshop flow

Each section or module contained in this workshop is designed to guide you through each step of the process to build the architecture referenced above. This is accomplished by using AWS Cloud 9 as our starting point along with a `git clone` of the content from our repository. Everything you need is provided to you including sample code, AWS CloudFormation templates, and detailed instructions. We will be using the AWS CLI from our Cloud9 instance to deploy the CloudFormation templates and build out our environment.
The examples and sample code provided in this workshop are intended to be consumed as instructional content.
