Getting here wasn’t an easy journey, filled with enriching, controversial, delightful, and endless conversations that, in the end, made it possible to build a language more useful for more users.

I love Terraform. It can do a lot of things really well and with all of the provider plugins it’s really easy to get started. I completely agree with this article that you shouldn’t be deploying your applications with Terraform.

As much as some people want to stick with the tool they’re familiar with, Terraform can deploy software but you’re going to hit a lot of limitations. You can try to mask those limitations or orchestrate Terraform apply commands with Jenkins. In reality you should use a different tool.

Don’t Deploy Applications with Terraform | by Paul Durivage | Google Cloud - Community | Mediummedium.com I know. This is a loaded topic. I can’t believe I’m going there–diving into the depths of a topic so heated, you probably already have strong opinions. Seriously, Terraform is not application…
