Over the past few months i’ve really gained a lot of experience working with AWS, whether it be through CCDC, Parade, or other personal projects.

Recently, I was asked to write a script to automatically deploy a new copy of some predefined service (as an example, a webserver). I was asked to host this service on an ec2 instance. I’ve gotten decently familiar with the aws-cli lately - hopefully this script can help someone else trying to accomplish a similar task!

I also created a destroy script, that terminates this created instance.
