The craft of software application development has evolved over the past thirty years. Yet, in comparison, Infrastructure as Code development (IaC) is still in its infancy. This talk presents some of the most impactful learning journeys from my career as an application developer, and how we can apply those lessons to accelerate the growth of Infrastructure as Code as a craft in its own right.

Have you ever had to re-write an entire template rapidly after discovering a flaw in production? Felt embarrassed to have bust a gut on a neat template update but realised you missed the point of the change request altogether? Have you ever struggled to come up to speed when reading someone else’s configuration management or infrastructure orchestration code? Maybe you’ve suffered from spaghetti-code in Terraform, CloudFormation, Chef or Puppet? How can we shortcut these pitfalls and leverage some of the practices that application developers have been honing for years? Find out in this session.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn tried and tested development techniques for ensuring high code quality
  • Understand how to apply agile principles to IaC development
  • Learn about testing frameworks for common Infrastructure as Code services
