Nope, that’s not Infrastructure as Code!
Infrastructure as Code (Iac) is marketed as the answer to all automation problems. How can that be true when no one really has a good definition? Let’s fix that! This talk captures ideas from a tweet battle started when Rob asked for a definition. We’ll decompose that #IaC thread into six themes from programmatic configuration up to CI/CD pipelines. Then, we’ll explore how each theme interlocks in specific and important ways using 10 years of history around Digital Rebar as an example. This talk provides specific and actionable ideas that will impact how you think about building automation for scale and distributed systems.
