“Terrible Terraform and how to avoid it”

Online - In person at: Laapersveld 27, 1213 VB, Hilversum

Let's travel through terrible terraform use-cases together. We will laugh, we will cry. And we will see how we can avoid it.


What we will experience together: The cold dread when encountering multiple layers of terraform modules. The unjust nagging feeling that you are not capable of understanding even a basic level of complexity. The extreme fulfilment in making your terraform code readable for your co-humans.

A sample of subjects that will come up:

  • Identity and Access Management – How do we keep it readable for everyone (including auditors)
  • Advanced usages of Terraform Workspace
  • Organizing your Terraform:
    • How and when to add abstractions
    • Variables, do we need them?
    • How to ensure your co-workers can easily add and test features on your code. How do you make your terraform not a one-off, but a thriving asset?
