Here's the recording from our DevOps “Office Hours” session on 2021-08-25.

We hold public “Office Hours” every Wednesday at 11:30am PST to answer questions on all things DevOps/Terraform/Kubernetes/CICD related.

These “lunch & learn” style sessions are totally free and really just an opportunity to talk shop, ask questions and get answers.

Register here: cloudposse.com/office-hours

Basically, these sessions are an opportunity to get a free weekly consultation with Cloud Posse where you can literally “ask me anything” (AMA). Since we're all engineers, this also helps us better understand the challenges our users have so we can better focus on solving the real problems you have and address the problems/gaps in our tools.

[00:00:00​] Intro
[00:01:05​] Null Label now supports tenants, labels_as_tags, and descriptors (very powerful!)
https://github.com/cloudposse/terraform-null-label/pull/132/files
[00:17:50​] New documentation on using Leapp instead of aws-vault
https://docs.cloudposse.com/howto/geodesic/authenticate-with-leapp/
[00:27:30​] Reference architecture cold-start docs are coming!!! (maybe next week?)
[00:29:11​] Geodesic M1 support disclaimer. Tools ecosystem not ready.

[00:33:25​] Are the Cloud Posse modules tested using Terraform Cloud in addition to other, standard setups?
[00:35:27​] Are you guys still using your own Atlantis fork at Cloud Posse?
[00:39:33​] If anyone has used both CDK for Terraform and Pulumi I'd be interested in any impressions. I have a team of Go developers, so using HCL is actually harder for me to get adopted at this time.
[00:46:39​] Could we mention that this issue requires everyone’s thumbs up, so that AWS prioritize SAM+Terraform – https://github.com/aws/aws-sam-cli/issues/3154
[00:51:54] EKS module is the most complicated terraform-aws-modules module
[01:00:23​] Outro
