Hello everyone 👋 A question. Can I use Pulumi without using Pulumi Cloud? I just ran
pulumi new aws-go
and it is asking me to log into pulumi cloud! Does that mean I can't use Pulumi unless I use Pulumi Cloud?

You don't need to use cloud (although it's convenient and does have a free tier) - https://www.pulumi.com/docs/concepts/state/
I think you can play around just on local with
pulumi login --local
For a real project you probably want a remote backend like s3 if you're not going to use Pulumi cloud

Thanks @straight-restaurant-43758. I am starting a real project. How can I tell Pulumi to store state on AWS S3? Is there a way I can tell it so via the CLI?

To be honest I've never done it, so I'm not sure, but I believe you need to do something like
pulumi login s3://{your_bucket}

I see, so the bucket has to exist already. If I remember correctly, in CDK, the CDK itself goes and creates the bucket on S3 and store the state there. I was hoping Pulumi would have a similar option
How many stacks can one build in the Individual tier? I can't see that info on their pricing page

I don't think there's a billing-based limit; pricing is primarily based on the total number of resources managed by Pulumi
