    Honestly I've had good luck writing clean Cloud Formation. It's AWS only. But Nested Stacks can help keep things pretty clean and tools like cfn-lint do a pretty good job of preventing you from going too crazy with spaghetti code. Additionally, as it's all json/yaml, you can parse it to look for common problems your organization wants to enforce. So you can ensure things like specific tags your roles/vpc etc..., or usage of an "approved" set of AMI, requiring an EKS/RDS cluster to be split across availability zones; they're all just a test in your CI pipeline away.

    cfn-lint and cfn_nag or other tools of that nature to check as you write so you don't need to continually try to deploy only to find that you've done something dumb.

    I use cfn-lint for this. Works great in a CI pipeline for example, and goes much further than just checking validity: it also checks all manner of good style etc…
