Was it difficult for your teams to implement Terraform using AWS services?

Took a bit to get used to since we had never used TF and we created a lot of custom TF code but once it was done its been pretty easy

Dominic, recently did this at my current employer. We have no IaC before Terraform. Hardest part was figuring out where to start in getting Terraform in the flow of development.

Depending on what your trying to do you can also look into TF frameworks like https://www.kubestack.com/ or curated modules https://github.com/orgs/cloudposse/repositories

@Hugo Pinheiro I'm always a bit sceptical about the CloudPosse custom toolings like atmos and geodesic, I'd love to hear what's your experience with them?

@Mengda Lei I got a poc of using geodesic as a base container for a local portable dev environment, initially i used atmos as a custom cli but they moved away from that and you cant do custom commands anymore so i used the same cli package they initial had used to build my own custom cli, works pretty well, we havent tried their modules since we went with the regular community ones with our own customization on top, but we have gotten bitten more than once by the community ones where they do entire reworks :(
