Deploy Everything you Touch - with Terraform!

By Renata Rocha

Elevator Pitch

You can do everything (well, mostly) you want with Terraform. Setup a hybrid of Alibaba and Oracle Cloud (whatever) send metrics to Grafana? Yes! With a vast collection of providers and active community, Terraform is now one of the most popular DevOps tools. I’ll tell you everything I love about it


I have been working with Terraform since 2015, and have quickly fallen in love with the readability of its code and how engaged the community is. It’s easy to get started and quickly spin up a cluster with lots of servers, absolutely anywhere. The community is supportive, growing, there are lots of open source modules and providers and it’s unlikely that you will run into a configuration that it doesn’t support. And if it doesn’t now, probably someone is writing a module to fix that soon.
