Terraform. OMG Sep 2, 2018 • Julian Simpson Recently I found myself in the rare situation of needing to interview for a job ( spoiler: I got it). They asked for a technical test, so I made a thing. Terra uses Packer and Terraform to build an AMI and deploy it. The only thing that went wrong is my crappy frontend skills. Terraform ticks a lot of boxes for me: declarative, graph-based, IDE support, and good integrations with other tools. I’ve been using it to build stuff at my new job, and it’s going well. I hope to write a more detailed comparison of some of these tools.
