    That's what I was thinking; I used cloud-nuke to wholly destroy a test account, but if I need more fine-grained policies I think I would go with Cloud Custodian. I think that this project's features are a subset of it.

    A good way to experiment with AWS is using a tool like ACloudGuru’s sandbox. Which allows you to work in an isolated AWS account which gets terminated after 24 hours, so no nasty bills or clean up to worry about. Another useful tool to look at is Cloud Nuke, which can completely clean an AWS account.

    The first thing you have to do is create a new account for testing purposes. This is needed because we are going to use cloud-nuke to destroy everything that we had created for testing. You will sleep better if there are almost zero chances to destroy something that is in production.
