Used Terraform
Deployed to AWS
Improved development pipeline
+ 1
This felt good and is the culmination of a project so I wanted to share it:

Over the past 6 months, I went from "having used AWS a few times" to "creating, deploying, and owning the lifecycle for infrastructure across dev, QA, and Prod environments." I had to show a client team how to best use Terraform, and had to evolve and adapt the infrastructure many times along the way. I also created and evolved the CI pipeline across TeamCity and Octopus (client tools of choice).

AWS services deployed included:

  • Lambda functions
  • API Gateway
  • CloudFront for both API Gateway and S3
  • WAF
  • Secrets
  • CMKs
  • S3 Buckets
  • IAM Roles and Policies
  • Glue Jobs
  • RDS Aurora
This infrastructure passed the client team's many checks for resiliency and security to become their first AWS application deployed to production.

Added GitHub Codespaces support to the NUnit Docs project and blogged about it.

Was a really great feeling to put Docker, bash, mono, and Node together to create this result.

Had a pull request merged that contributed support for Giscus comments to the Minimal Mistakes Jekyll Theme.

After their release in v4.24.0, I added them to FlavorsOf.NET. I'll be using these on as soon as I move comments over from Disqus.
