A couple of months ago, I came to realize I might actually like DevOps. I wasn’t sure what to do, so I talked to the VP of Engineering at WyeWorks. Following that conversation, we found a way for me to work in a DevOps position for several months and try it out.
I left the project I was working on at that time and was given a month to learn some basic stuff so that I would be somewhat useful in a DevOps job. And that’s exactly what I did. Beginning January 2nd of this year, I’ve been reading up on and doing DevOps work 5 days a week, 7 hours a day.
In this post, I’m going to discuss my perspective on IAC (Infrastructure as Code), what problems it solves, and how it can be implemented. I will also share some resources for further learning, as well as briefly present Terraform, an IAC tool.
