Abstract

Much has been written about how to write Microservices, but not enough about how to effectively deploy and manage them. Microservices architecture multiplies the number of deployables IT has to manage by at least 10x. In that world, tooling to manage cloud deployments and related infrastructure becames essential for success. Terraform and Docker are increasingly being leveraged to facilitate microservice environments. Terraform has become becoming the leading coding framework for building and managing change in cloud environments.

Attendees will learn best practices for deploying and managing microservices in production. We will leverage true "infrastructure as code" using Terraform. That code is easily re-used and make changes easy. That code makes it easy to deploy and scale software including Docker images. You will learn not only how to establish that environment initially, but how changes can be effectively managed. I'll cover best practices and common mistakes along the way. AWS will be used as the cloud provider, but Terraform operates seemlessly on other cloud environments as well.

This session is targeted at architects and team leads. This session is intended to be platform-generic.
