Branch Deploy Infrastructure
Every pull request gets a complete environment automatically. Engineers can test their code safely in a fully isolated and reproducible manner. Each environment gets a copy of dev database, auotmated migrations, autoscaling, logging.
A cloud provider did not have a Terraform provider and we wanted one. I wrote an API client by reverse engineering their website and turned it into an idiomatic Terraform provider. It is in the process of being open sourced.
On-Demand Container Clusters on VMWare
We needed the ability to flexibly create Kubernetes & DC/OS clusters in an on-premise environment. I reimagined the process as a single easy-to-use tool and lead the development. It become better than I could have hoped and is under active development by a multi-person team.
