# Create my first Stack

This guide covers how to create your own Cycloid private stack from scratch. The source code for each step in the documentation is available here (opens new window).

We will create a stack called stack-sample to create & deploy a cloud instance using Terraform and a pipeline.

Here is an overview of the final result: Final pipeline

This pipeline will get the source code of a website from a Git repository, run unit tests on the code, and then create and deploy a cloud instance to run the website using this code with Terraform.
