• What we will do
Build a platform with code, anyone can do it and it's the proper way. Professionals build on top of platforms to be fast, predictable, and scalable. We'll practice how to create your own platform from scratch using software and you'll leave with some tools in your box to use in your company/projects. We'll introduce the concept of infrastructure as code (IaC), by going through a quick overview of the current technologies around IaC, a little bit about our own experiences creating platforms and using them in production.
• What you need
Bring your own laptop. Make sure you have admin right on it. You'll also need a valid AWS account and terraform installed. We'll do the exercises in pairs.
