Terraform Practices - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
2022-06-18, 15:00–15:25, Room 2

Terraform is a GREAT tool, but like a lot of other things in life, it has its pitfalls and bad practices.

Since you are working with Terraform, you probably went through its documentation, which can tell you what resources can be used - BUT do you always have a clear path towards using these resources? How should modules be constructed? How should you structure your Terraform code in general?

In this talk, I’ll cover the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to Terraform. I will show best practices for working with Terraform that were put together with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, so you’ll ultimately have a go-to approach and a paved way for working with Terraform, whether it’s an existing codebase or a new functionality altogether, and also hopefully make you think about the big picture and utilize Terraform in a broader context rather than just an “infrastructure as code" tool.
