What is it like to use Terraform every day? What horrors might be uncovered should you choose to use it? And what dizzying pleasures await the brave engineer. Graham will explore some of Terraform's best features and more ugly warts, gathered from using it in production for more than a year. All infrastructure should be automated as much as possible. Expressing your infrastructure as code enables repeatable provisioning, avoiding clumsy human error clicking through a UI. CloudFormation, hosted by AWS, is an excellent tool for spinning up resources on that provider but what about the alternatives? Hashicorp have a great reputation for building products that enable DevOps in organisations and Terraform is one of their more mature offerings. It allows infrastructure to be expressed declaratively as code and can provision resources across providers.
