Infrastructure As Code

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:

  1. If it’s not automated, it’s not done.
  2. If it moves, measure it.
  3. if its’ not monitored, it doesn’t exist.
