DevOps Solutions Developer @ DVT
I’m a DevOps solutions developer from South Africa - previously a full stack engineer but now specializing in DevOps (engineering and leadership).
I feel my experience and history places me in that category of “ops-savvy” developers, and I’m quite inspired by how much this community has managed to accomplish in a short space of time.
Outside of work I’m quite a music/film nerd, and I love soccer and play it casually. I’m a huge FC Barcelona fanboy and my dream is to one day be able to watch a game live at the Camp Nou.
Goodbye template files! Using CDKs to migrate from IaC to Infrastructure as Software
The talk will be focused on the recent introduction of Cloud Development Kit tools.
These enable engineers to make use of general purpose programming languages to provision infrastructure, as opposed to provisioning and managing infrastructure via graphical user interfaces, command line interfaces, or template files (such as ARM or CloudFormation yaml/json files).
A consequence of this is the progression from Infrastructure As Code to Infrastructure As Software, offering a host of benefits in a DevOps world.
Topics covered in the talk include:
Introduction and brief history of cloud infrastructure
Overview of Cloud Development Kit tools
Benefits of using a general-purpose programming language to provision cloud infrastructure
CDKs: Even better for DevOps!
We’ve already provisioned infrastructure manually – what’s the best way to move to an IaC model?
