Infrastructure Best Practices


This doc is aimed to provide some general guidance as to infrastructure best practices. It is by no means a rigid set of rules, but rather a handful of tips that may help.


I attempted to break these recommendations into distinct files:

  • General FAQ and Tooling: General guidance in the form of a FAQ. Also contrasts some other tooling.
  • Terraform: General guidance regarding Terraform that I have found to improve productivity.
  • Local development: General guidance on how to improve local development
