Introduction to Infrastructure-as-Code

The London Technology Unconference is an annual gathering of technologists within Thomson Reuters.

In 2018, I hosted a session about the infrastructure-as-code framework I lead in ONESOURCE Statutory Reporting.

In particular, I talked about:

  • Why infrastructure-as-code was essential for our team.
  • The Python scripts and CloudFormation templates we had written.
  • How our YAML configuration-as-code allowed other teams to easily fork our work and deploy their own infrastructure.
  • How we ensured high quality and tested our code.
  • The tools and strategies we found useful.
