Ever wonder how you can improve your infrastructure processes like a developer can improve building software? In short, you’ve been thinking about infrastructure-as-code (IaC) and cloud engineering. In this talk and demo, we’ll build, deploy, and manage a simple, life-like stack with cloud engineering principles. While we’re working, we discuss the pros and cons of IaC and cloud engineering, the differences among various providers and DIY setups, and the future of cloud engineering. Let’s get into the terminal and see what we can build together.
