Learn how to apply and good engineering practices like reversibility and automation to your Dev Ops and resource provisioning processes with Infrastructure as Code.

The Pearl District, Portland. Fall 2021.

Luke Hoban, CTO of Pulumi, joined me for a conversation about infrastructure as code (IAC), which allows software development teams to configure and control their cloud infrastructure assets using code in contrast to other approaches such as using web interfaces or command line interfaces. Luke described how IAC allows teams to apply good software development practices and patterns to their provisioning and management of cloud infrastructure resources. Various related topics were explored in more detail such as managing and applying IAC definitions, security considerations with IAC, compliance enforcement when using IAC, and testing practices to employ when using IAC.
