Luke Hoban/Pulimi

Luke Hoban is CTO of Pulumi, a venture-backed Seattle-based startup that supports the development of modern infrastructure in any popular computing language.

In an interview, Luke Hoban discusses infrastructure as code (IAC), which allows software development teams to configure and control their cloud infrastructure assets using code, in contrast to other approaches, such as using web interfaces or command-line interfaces.

Hoban describes how IAC allows teams to apply good software development practices and patterns to their provisioning and management of cloud infrastructure resources. Other related topics include managing and applying IAC definitions, security considerations with IAC, compliance enforcement when using IAC, and testing practices to employ when using IAC.
