The Terraform Framework
I started BoltOps Learn as a way to figure out how to support the Open Source tools I’ve written. Found the videos so helpful that I begin watching them myself to help refresh my memory in areas 🤣
I’m a builder and learn by doing. Think this is the best way for most people to learn. The videos are extremely hands-on. Since I’ve coded on both the Application Development and the Infrastructure Operation side of things, it has provided me a unique perspective of what works well. A friend once mentioned, “Think you’ve worked so hard, long, and built so many tools that you somehow manage to internalize how things should work”.
If you hang out long enough, you’ll see the patterns in the videos and tools. The videos are about getting the knowledge you need for the job in the real-world.
From humble beginnings as the first hire for a small sports site in 2007. I built and grew an engineering team to 35 engineers. Eventually, became the Vice President of Engineering of the 2nd largest sports site in the world, larger than Yahoo Sports. I've also been use-case speaker in the early days of Docker at the DockerCon 2014 keynote. I've been also recognized as an AWS Container Hero.
Ultimately, I'm a developer at heart. I'm passionate about DevOps and am the author of many open source tools.
Not only do I teach about Cloud Infrastructure, I actually build tools in the DevOps space. Here are a few.
The Terraform Framework
Kubernetes Deployment Tool
The Ruby Serverless Framework
The CloudFormation Framework
AWS ECS docker deployment tool
AWS CodeBuild management tool
AWS CodePipeline management tool
It provides an organized structure, conventions over configurations, keeps your code DRY, and adds convenient tooling. Terraspace makes working with Terraform easier and more fun.
Ruby on Jets allows you to create and deploy serverless services with ease, and to seamlessly glue AWS services together with the most beautiful dynamic language: Ruby. It includes everything you need to build an API and deploy it to AWS Lambda. Jets leverages the power of Ruby to make serverless joyful for everyone.
Cody is a AWS CodeBuild management tool. Cody simplifies creating and managing AWS CodeBuild projects. Comes with a powerful DSL.
Building infrastructure-as-code is challenging. Lono makes it much easier and fun. It includes everything you need to manage and deploy infrastructure-as-code.
Kubes is a Kubernetes Deployment Tool. It builds the docker image, creates the Kubernetes YAML, and runs kubectl apply. It automates the deployment process and saves you precious finger-typing energy.
