-Developer: “I’m done with the code. Just need to test and deploy now!”
-Boss: “Great! When I can see it live?”
-Developer: “At the end of the sprint?”
-Boss: “2 weeks? Why does it take 2 weeks to put a few lines of code into production?”

The ability to react quickly to changes and outperform competitors is one of the key advantages to microservice architecture. But just how fast can these changes be delivered without forsaking quality, robustness, etc. Chris and his Team decided to find out by streamlining their delivery pipeline and leveraging the latest technologies. Using Jenkins 2.0 pipelines, Terraform and a number of other tools, they now build, test and deploy our microservices to AWS.
In this talk, Chris will share how they built their “infrastructure-as-code” repo as well as their full continuous deployment pipeline, all using open-source tools. This will be a nitty-gritty, practical session rather than pure theory which will show the tools in action, as well as the code Chris and his team wrote to get things right.
