Posted on Wednesday, Mar 13, 2024

Show Notes

#254: When you first started out working with infrastructure, you probably used point and click to get your work done. Over time, you created scripts to replace some of that point and click work.

But then, many infrastructure as code tools exploded on the market. You may have started working with one or two or you may have chosen to just keep doing what you were doing, but you soon realized you were falling way behind what was going on in the industry.

In this episode, Darin and Viktor discuss many of the ups and downs of using infrastructure as code and why not every infrastructure as code tool may be the right tool for you.
