Howdy 👋, I'm Butch Mayhew

Looking forward to continuing to learn more about the systems that run our software, along with ways in which to increase feedback loops. I've got a pretty solid understanding of all things Quality / Software Testing, but still learning the Ops side of things.

I learned about Ops.IO from Page it to the Limit podcast :)

So glad you came to join us, @bmayhew! That's one cheery profile gif you've got going on there 😄

What's the #1 thing on the Ops side that you're trying to wrap your head around just now? Let's see if we can direct you to some helpful resources and the people behind them...

(Can't forget to send a big thank-you to @lnxchk and the Page It To The Limit podcast for sending Butch our way!)

Currently working to determine the best architecture and toolset for building out our infrastructure as code. Our team has started to build things out in Terraform, but we aren't hard committed yet, but that is the direction we are leaning. It seems like Terraform and tools in this space can do a lot of things, I'm trying to figure out what I want it to t do for us, what I don't want it to do for us.

Our long term plan is to modularize our system, and building a platform for our devs to provide a simple yml file, we take that and build out the infrastructure needed for that service.

Sounds like you have a lot of exploring to do! I'm not sure exactly what questions you and your team are asking, but check out @jatin, @the_cozma, @xaviermignot, and @javi_labs content on Terraform for some honest opinions and possible solutions.

They're all super helpful people with plenty of insight to share. Leave a comment on their posts with any questions you might have.

ETA: You might also enjoy @oleonardorodrigues's recent post on Terraform modules

Awesome to read Butch! If you have questions please shoot them we are all here to help each other :)

The approach you mention is totally possible with Terraform, I don;t do it with yaml files but json files as configuration files which then I feed to terraform modules that form my infrastructure needs (I have modules that contains multiple resources inside that makes a "building block").

In my posts you will find this approach used many times and also one for document in confluence (but you can use the idea to do the same in other platforms as well) so you have the complete pack, IaC and DocumentationAsCode :)

Hope you enjoy the community and welcom again!

Ella (she/her/elle)

Hi Uche! Welcome! That's quite a spread of things you want to learn about, you've got there.

While this community is definitely here to help you with your pivot if you're aiming to move into DevOps, for the stack you've just listed I'm going to recommend you stop by some other places to get more relevant support and advice.

I like to suggest CodeNewbie to get started with Python, HTML, and CSS; I used to be a mod for that community and it's such a helpful environment for beginner coding!

Alternatively, if you're looking to focus on R, SPSS, SAS, you might want to check out the r/statistics subreddit for relevant communities and subs. It's a friendly sub, and people there seem very open to beginner questions.

If you decide you want to dig into DevOps technologies, we are here for it! Let us know what you'd like to learn more about and we will help where we can!
