Overengineering your personal website

Let's be honest, whether consciously or not we all do it. In this talk we'll discuss how far down the rabbit whole one can go, while serving only a single static html page.

So don't be surprised to come across an application deployed using waypoint onto a vm build using packer that resides in a fully terraformed AWS environment
