This video has the Introduction on Cloudformation.
Please note; every Cloud/DevOps/Test Engineer need to drive the infra setup tasks through IAC scripts only, when they are advanced in infra setup understanding. For every infra setup tasks they should be able to step down to develop these IAC scripts by using different tools. In AWS, we can use CF, Terraform and Ansible very easily for the medium level config scripts building.
For a jumpstart of learning process, I have started building some videos on understanding the Infra scripts process through CF Templates with POCs/demos. Following link has these videos to watch and do self practice with CF.
Please follow my videos : https://business.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/
Once you are perfect you can choose any of the Infra CM Tools to write scripts and run for automated infra setup.
The samples are made with the below infra setup scenarios:

I hope you have seen my AWS Coaching specimen on the URL: https://www.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/
Let us also be aware: Due to lacks of certified professionals are available globally in the market on AWS, to differentiate them on their needs/selection, most of the clients are asking on the real experience gained or aware of IAC. They give a Console and ask you to setup a specific Infra setup in AWS.
In my coaching I focus on the candidates to gain the real Cloud Architecture implementation experience rather than pushing the course with screen operations only to complete. Through my posted videos you can watch this USP.
Contact for your real Cloud experiences learning and gaining with me and crack the interviews to get offers in AWS Roles globally or even you can transition to the role in the same company after facing the client interview/selection process. Which is very easy with this knowledge.
Please connect me on FB and have a discussion on your background and the needs/goals. I am looking for the serious learners only by having dedicated time. If you are a busy resource on the projects please note; you can wait to become free to learn. One need to spend time consistently on the practice. Otherwise its going to be in no-use.
