Automating infrastructure provisioning is a key tenant of effective organisations. A new class of tooling emerged around the term infrastructure as code but often, this tooling makes use of DSLs and configuration languages to be effective.
If you want to treat infrastructure like software, you need to bring in software development practices. UX considerations, testing, portable, abstractions. Existing infrastructure as code tooling will often ask you to consider using familiar programming languages to accomplish these things, so why not use those languages to provision your infrastructure?
In this talk, we'll take a whistle-stop tour through the history of infrastructure as code and examine new, emerging approaches for defining repeatable, declarative infrastructure with the full benefits of software development.
