what do you all use for IaC?


I’m getting started with building some new projects in AWS and trying to decide if I should invest in CloudFormation or something more generic


Some folks prefer Terraform over CloudFormation. Personally I learned to like CloudFormation. It has horrible learning curve and you have to really go deep into AWS mindset of doing things but I think it’s worth it if your infra is completely on AWS.


I think the general feeling I have (and many other people have) is that my infra is all on AWS… for now 😂


Well, for example at previous company we had a client with AWS + Heroku stack. Terraform could deal with both.


Nice thing with CloudFormation is that it’s hosted service. With Terraform you need to maintain state ‘somewhere’.
