Presented at Odyssey 2021.
You update your infrastructure modules or configurations and quickly push production changes. Meanwhile, you’re secretly hoping they all work but dreading the alert that something has gone wrong. Is there a way to alleviate some of the dread and catch errors before production?
In this talk, Rosemary will apply the test pyramid to testing cloud infrastructure and show how some types of tests can flag potential misconfigurations to infrastructure as code before pushing to production. She'll also compare the financial and time cost of running each test type. By the end of the session, you’ll leave with a better understanding of when to write tests for your cloud infrastructure, how to manage the cost of running tests, and which tests can benefit your changes.
