CloudControl 2.0.0-alpha1 (and how I learned Go)

As you might know, CloudControl is DoDevOps‘ cloud engineer toolbox, which supplies cloud engineers working in different clouds with common tools in an easy-to-deploy container environment suitable for multiple projects. I always wasn’t quite happy with CloudControl’s initialization process. It was very cluttered, didn’t point out the relevant information and… well, ugly. At first, I Read More

Announcing CloudControl – the cloud engineer’s toolbox ☁️ 🧰

We happen to be in a multitude of different projects at the same time. Switching from project to project is sometimes hard as the tooling and the configuration changes from project to project. Now in the days of cloud deployments, this can be narrowed down to just a bunch of tools like Terraform, Kubernetes or Read More

Managing integration systems using clone playbooks

You totally can test stuff, fix bugs and check out how to implement new features on production! If you’re a masochist, that is. Usually a production system is a no-no for anything development related. Even if bugs happen on production, the best practice is to reproduce those bug on systems other than production. These systems Read More

tflookup – Developer diary Epilogue

Dear diary, it’s been some days since I wrote to you about my experience with creating a Terraform documentation lookup app and while I’m using tflookup on a daily, I noticed something. When I start my work in the morning and have the first interest in looking up some provider resource of Terraform, I naturally Read More

tflookup – Developer Diary Part 5

Dear Diary! MY LOOKUP APP WORKS! Yayy! Locally at least. But what good is a web app, if you can only enjoy it yourself? So I needed a way to deploy my app automatically (and for free). Luckily, Heroku is around. Heroku is a simple app hosting provider, which hosts very simple apps for free. Read More

tflookup – Developer Diary Part 4

Dear Diary! So I finished my REST service which will deliver my search results. But what good is that without an appealing frontend. After I was nearly blown away by the overwhelming good critics about Vue.js at last year’s enterjs I took the Vue-way immediately. I think, Vue is very easy compared to other frameworks Read More

tflookup – Developer Diary Part 3

Dear Diary! Now that I have a documentation index, I could write a server, that serves that index and searches it. That server will ultimately also deliver my frontend application, because I’m too lazy to do it the microservices way right now. The most easy and stable web server for Node I know today is Read More

tflookup – Developer Diary Part 2

Dear Diary! Hmmm… A lookup app. How could that work? I need a frontend obviously. And a backend, that does the heavy work. Frontend and backend should communicate through REST. What else? The backend should index the Terraform documentation Everything should be well tested of course First things first. The absolute basis for the whole Read More

tflookup – Developer Diary Part 1

Dear Diary! As a DevOps engineer (or SRE as the cool people call it) I’m working closely together with Terraform which is one more great open source based application from Hashicorp and allows to define an infrastructure in text files (read: „Infrastructure as code“) Terraform has a great and extensive documentation, especially for the things Read More
