🎛️ 28 new ways to screw with your developers
Control Tower Launches new proactive controls
Happy Memorial Day weekend. This is Unlimited Leave, the AWS Management and Governance newsletter reminding you (if you’re in the US) to enjoy that burger or brat and a cold one on your day off. Don’t let anyone guilt you into thinking Memorial Day is just supposed to be about remembering the fallen.
That’s BS. Cheers them and continue to celebrate the freedom we have.
They perished so we can all do just that.

Very light on the content this week.

Account Cleanser with AWS NUKE
New Control Tower Proactive Controls
The proactive controls leverage CloudFormation Hooks (CloudFormation Guard) to prevent resources from being deployed if they do not meet compliance.
These are different than Detective Controls (AWS Config Rules) and Protective Controls (SCPs) in that resources simply won’t make it into the environment at all if they do not comply with your pre-defined definitions.
You can see where this might get a little frustrating so be sure to let your developers know when you implement these.
AWS-Samples Provides Account Cleanser
I’ve been toying with ways to build and while lab environments and/or Sandboxes after I came across this
It’s starting to become apparent I may have bit off a little more with the size of this flagship course than I can handle at this stage of life and now that we are running into summer activity season.
I’m just over halfway done with the content expected for the initial launch and I’m starting to feel that I might bust the timeline.
The closer that comes to reality, I will issue refunds. I still plan to finish the course and anyone who purchased in advance will have the opportunity to rebuy at the original discounted cost when the course is complete.
For now, I’m going to power on as if everything is on schedule. The rate purchased now is the rate you’d ultimately pay if you decide to get the course in the future. That means, we’re still going up:
March 31st - $99
April 7th. - $99
April 14th - $99
April 21st - $109
April 28th - $119
May 5th - $129
May 12th - $149
May 19th - $209
Today the price increases to $229
