Talk Description: Automating the cloud with Infrastructure as Code
Speaker - Dave Townsend (@davetownsend) – Principal Software Engineer - Matson, Inc
Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is no longer just about automating the creation of VM's. Successful modern application development in the cloud requires a modern approach to managing ALL of the cloud resources for your applications. Building and maintaining cloud resources by hand in the web console without a repeatable and automated way to manage the entire architecture is both highly error-prone and non-scalable.
In this talk, we will cover what IaC is all about and why it is beneficial to use. We will then deep dive into the key CloudFormation constructs to learn how to fully manage cloud resources on AWS using CloudFormation.
