This talk is an introduction to what infrastructure-as-code looks like in the real world. At Atomic Squirrel, we have helped a number of startups set up their DevOps practices, and in this talk, I will show you what we learned about building and deploying production-ready, secure, and scalable microservices in AWS. Topics include:
- Defining your services using Docker
- Defining your infrastructure using Terraform
- Deploying your services using ECS
- Scaling your services using Auto Scaling Groups
- Microservice gotchas
