Today’s cloud infrastructure is really complex. What if you could truly make this infrastructure a black box?
What if you could mutate this infrastructure safely and easily? See how to use Terraform efficiently across
hundreds of developers while leveraging a simple Github workflow and Terraform modules.
Hootsuite was one of the early adopters of Terraform and faced some challenges early on with Terraform workflow.
* This session will cover how Hootsuite uses Terraform modules and leverages them to bridge the gap between devs and
* We will discuss how we came up with our own state management system that helps us safely mutate the state of our
infrastructure from one state to the other. How you can organize your Terraform states across multiple tiers of your
infrastructure. We will also talk about our own HTTP remote state store on top of S3 that enables us to edit states
* Most importantly, we came up with our own Terraform workflow that uses github pull requests to do approvals and
state locking so we don’t corrupt Terraform states for our infrastructure.
