Abstraction and Encapsulation
Explore abstraction and encapsulation with Pulumi and component resources.
How long this tutorial will take depends on your internet connection, reading speed, and other factors. On average, this tutorial should take you about 25 minutes to complete.
You will need the following knowledge to complete this pathway:
- Completion of the Pulumi Fundamentals and Building with Pulumi pathways, OR have experience using Pulumi for other projects
Optionally, if you want to build some of the examples yourself to experiment, you’ll need the following tools and skills:
- A Pulumi account and token
- If you don’t have an account, go to the signup page.
- The Pulumi CLI
- If you don’t have the CLI, go to the installation page.
- An AWS account (the free version should be fine)
- Familiarity with either the TypeScript or Python programming language
