Command-line Your Way to PaaS Productivity With DigitalOcean App Platform


About the Talk

In this new world of PaaS, what will happen to our traditional infrastructure? Does a PaaS render IaaS obsolete? PaaS and IaaS don’t need to be in competition with each other; PaaS is just another tool on our toolbelt for getting the job done. In this live coding session, we use Terraform to deploy both DigitalOcean App Platform apps and traditional Infrastructure-as-a-Service components that work together to meet our needs.

What You’ll Learn

• How to use App Platform Spec [https://github.com/do-community/rss-reader-app-platform-spec] • Define your own spec file and deploy multiple components at once • Deploy an app with doctl and your own custom spec
