HashiConf is organised every year by HashiCorp, the company behind Vault, Terraform and Vagrant. The Instruqt team was present during HashiConf US in San Francisco. Our founder Erik Veld gave a talk on how we power our Arcade machines with Terraform. Fun fact: he actually presented his talk on an arcade machine on stage. Once the video is available, I will update this blogpost. During the conference, HashiConf announced a number of product updates.
At the CodeMotion event in Amsterdam which was held on 8 and 9 May, I gave a talk which gives a look behind the scenes of instruqt. In the talk I showed how the platform is built and why we lean heavily on tools such as Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes and Terraform. After that we took a look at the inner workings of the platform. Showing what actually happens behind the scenes when content is created and when users interact with the platform.
