Infrastructure as Code has become an essential part of the mindset which has allowed the DevOps movement to explode in popularity. There are countless stories of productivity increases from teams who have taken popular IaC tools and built robust infrastructure which enables teams to ship software fast.

Often, these tools involve a learning curve to adopt. That could be understanding the available features of your cloud provider, learning a new DSL or reading a long, complex YAML document, for many developers this can be too overwhelming and involves being catapulted out of their comfort zone.

In this talk, the speaker will introduce Pulumi, an infrastructure-as-code platform which meets developers where they are, and examine how developing IaC that uses application programming languages can improve teams and orgs.

Lee Briggs, Staff Engineer at Pulumi is a Staff Software Engineer at Pulumi. With almost 10 years of experience designing, building and maintaining distributed and complex systems, he wears the scars of many deployment tools. When he's not trying to fit monolithic applications into containers, he playing and watching Soccer and walks with his family and dog, Toby.
