ArticCon 2022 (continued)
I’m going to talk about two things a lot in this talk.
- Defining your infrastructure in an abstract, easy to maintain format that you decide. Then transforming it into something compatible with terraform resources.
- Using TypeScript to safely modify your config and transform it to a datastructure more ergonomic to program in.
The technologies in this talk are not hard requirements
There are lots of tools for approaching many different problems. Hopefully you’re able to get something out of this whether or not you use cloud providers, typescript, cdktf, or terraform or care about networking at all.
One could easily apply the configuration methodology to tools like pillarstack if you’re using salt, or hiera if you’re using puppet.
