About this event

How can platform engineers effectively test Infrastructure as Code (IaC) at scale? In this talk you’ll discover which IaC testing techniques work, and which don’t, based on our experience at a large government department.

Platform teams often provide capabilities to a large number of other teams. Dealing with infrastructure which is so critical to so many can lead to a fear of change. We’ll address this by looking at some techniques we used at a large government department to:

  • Make changes with confidence
  • Improve engineer experience
  • Formalise our contract with our customers

Building and managing infrastructure always requires a healthy dose of pragmatism; we will showcase the pitfalls and trade-offs engineers need to make each day. This will help you have confidence in expanding and improving the services you offer, and avoid getting stuck with overly complex, slow, or brittle testing.
