Deploying and Managing Infrastructure with Terraform, Ansible and GitLab CI

  1. Some understanding of what Infrastructure as Code and Configuration Management tools are (Terraform, Ansible).
  2. Some understanding of what AWS Cloud is would probably be an advantage.
Session details

Terraform is the defacto champion of Infrastructure as Code and provisioning. GitLab provides the perfect platform for managing code, CI and containers from development to production. AWS is the leader in Infrastructure as a Service.

In this talk, I will introduce the audience to a complete pipeline to build and transfer applications from GitLab to AWS using Terraform and GitLab CI.

Along the way we will:

  1. Provision and manage our infrastructure with Terraform
  2. Configure our infrastructure with Ansible (both mutable and immutable)
  3. Secure with Vault
  4. Manage it all in GitLab CI pipelines making it all versionable, auditable and visible
  5. Have fun (hopefully).

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
