Today on Day Two Cloud, we talk about why Terraform stinks. OK, maybe it doesn’t stink, but just because everyone seems to love a particular tool doesn’t make it right for you. We talk with Dan Moore, a developer advocate at FusionAuth, who tried to use Terraform and just couldn’t get behind it. This episode is based on a presentation Dan gave at Gluecon in May 2022.
- Dan’s environment and requirements
- How Terraform didn’t meet all the needs of Dan’s use cases
- How Dan and the team tried to make Terraform work for them
- What they’re doing now, and how Terraform still does have a place in the organization
