Managing your terraform across multiple environments

You’re managing your cloud infrastructure using Terraform. You’ve got your first environment up and running and you’re already reaping the benefits of a codified infrastructure. Changes are easy. But, now you need to set up a second environment (staging, prod, whatever) and you’re finding that managing this is not straight forward. There’s a bunch of arguments to remember every time you switch between environments, and your switching a lot because you want to keep them in sync. Because this is hard you tend to use auto-complete, but then sometimes you forget to change something and accidentally apply prods config to staging. Well, as in many occasions, a Makefile can probably help you there.

Delivery Driven Developers

One thing that I’ve come to notice of late is that I’m a little different to a lot of developers that I meet. Many developers, seem to have a penchant for wanting to write code for the sake of writing code. To optimise, to agonise over, and ultimately to perfect the very specific piece of code that they’re working on, regardless of the bigger picture of the project.
