A slew of tools are all ripe for automating your SDLC: Github, Packer, Jenkins, Terraform. How do you take them off your desktop and put them into the cloud? You want automation with security and audit-ability, so let's go from code to cloud! Connect all of the tools you've heard of, see exactly what went on, and barely push any buttons… unless you want to.
We will begin with a live walk-through, taking code commits of basic terraform, a packer file, some application code, and demonstrating how jenkins and github can glue it all together in AWS for pennies, with speed, automation, security and visibility.
After the walk-through, I will highlight the connections and configurations of each, and explain how simple it is for these tools to get you automated fast, whether you're a one man crew or supporting a cast of hundreds.
I'm a Senior DevOps Architect at Elyxor. Since the late 80's, when big hair and embarrassing song lyrics riddled the air, I worked for companies like GXS, Rue La La, Sonicbids, and various other gigs. I usually labeled my role as the duct tape between developers and operations. Today, people are calling it DevOps and I can't enjoy it enough.
