"AWS OpsWorks helps you deploy and operate applications of all shapes and sizes. With AWS OpsWorks, you can model your application stack with layers that define the building blocks of your application: load balancers, application servers, databases, etc. But did you know that you can also use AWS OpsWorks to run commands or scripts on your instances? Whether you need to perform a specific task or install a new software package, AWS OpsWorks gives you the tools to install and configure your instances consistently and help them evolve in an automated and predictable fashion.
In this session, we dive into how you can create custom layers and a runtime system for your operational tooling, understand the lifecycle events, and show how to develop and test locally."
