How can you automate your infrastructure-as-code deployments into a reliable, easily reproducible process that allows you to deliver infrastructure changes in small batches.

Infrastructure-as-code tools like Terraform or Pulumi allow developers to describe their (cloud) infrastructure in code. Software development teams use them nowadays to manage their cloud resources. Still the question remains how you can properly automate the workflow around these tools to reduce the risk in deploying cloud infrastructure at scale.

This talk focuses on the considerations that one should make when running infrastructure code inside a Continuous Delivery pipeline. We will also dive into topics like proper development workflows for infrastructure code, testing your infrastructure code and disaster recovery.

The target group of the presentation are developers who already use infrastructure-as-code tools and now want to take the next steps towards automation.
