Paul Stack is a London based infrastructure engineer. Paul has spoken at various events throughout the world about his passion for continuous integration and continuous delivery and why they should be part of what developers do on a day to day basis. He believes that reliably delivering software is just as important as its development. PaulÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s newest passion is the DevOps movement and how this helps not just development and operations but the entire business and itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s customers.
The age old task of racking and stacking in a physical data centre is becoming more and more rare as more companies embrace the public cloud. Having the ability to chose between providers such as AWS, Azure, Digital Ocean and Google Cloud Platform makes creating infrastructure easy. It is better to spend time developing better services for our customers than managing infrastructure.
During this talk, Paul will demonstrate how building a scalable infrastructure on AWS becomes easy with Terraform. The talk will demonstrate how using configuration management, pre-baked AMIs and auto-scaling groups it gives the ability for developers to be able to launch their own infrastructure when needed. The demos will include the ability to launch instances, databases and manage user access. By the end of the talk, Paul will have demonstrated that the creation of infrastructure now becomes part of the development lifecycle and that the old ways of system administration is fast moving to become infrastructure engineering. Paul will also demonstrate that the creation of new "environments" are just a change of parameters in our infrastructure code.
