This session is for those who want to get going with cloud computing quickly on their Mac laptops.
It is now frustrating to get cloud clients configured to work. The need to create AWS IAM users and AZ tenants and principals with pem files, ssh files, gdp files, etc. takes dozens of manual steps. Most instructions for client installation, configuration, and smoke testing refer to manual procedures which do not scale and are error-prone.
In this tutorial, Wilson Mar walks you through a bash script that he and colleague Wisdom Hambolu developed to speed up installation and configuration of clients accessing clouds.
Participants get an inside view of how the script was created to be idempotent with DevSecOps-style ""immutable architecture"" so one can start from a new MacBook and have all the latest apps ready to work in one command after specifying the apps desired.
During this presentation, attendees dissect the bash script so they can see how it overcomes technical idiosyncrasies to establish and verify each of dozens of components. Included in the review is CLI access to AWS EC2, Azure, and GCP clouds, and how to keep secrets on laptops.
