Opinionated Tooling

Opinionated tooling is designed to guide you down a path that is considered a best practice. Additionally, since best practice is the default, the amount of code we maintain is dramatically reduced.

Rather than writing hundreds of lines of CloudFormation to orchestrate ECS, ECR, EC2, ELB, VPC, and IAM resources ourselves, we can start with a smart set of defaults, and just fill in a few blanks, customizing only the parts that we want changed.
