I recently read this article and listened to the 2015 AWS re:Invent session on the same. This discussion really resonated with me. I’m excited to try to automate everything, including infrastructure deployments, in my future development projects. I like the idea of using automated testing frameworks, such as serverspec, for testing infrastructure deployments.
My three big take-aways from the video:
- If it’s not automated, it’s not done.
- If it moves, measure it.
- if its’ not monitored, it doesn’t exist.
