Infrastructure-From-Code and the end of Microservices
Infrastructure-from-Code (IfC) is the newest frontier in cloud development. A novel new approach that’s superseding Infrastructure-as-Code and creating new capabilities and generational productivity gains.
We’ll investigate the 4 emerging approaches to IfC: SDK-based (Ampt, Nitric), in-code annotations based (Klotho), a combination of the two (Encore, Shuttle), and explicitly defined through a new programming language (Wing, DarkLang).
We’ll compare these approaches to the existing generation of tools, discuss their trade-offs and draw parallels to other disciplines that have used similar approaches. How will the wave of open source IfC technologies impact the current technologies and platforms, and will it force organizations to revisit the DevOps movement altogether? Join us and see what you think!

He started his journey on Commodore64’s with cassette tapes and (much) more recently led teams in Microsoft’s Visual Studio as well as the cloud services org at Riot Games (League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, Valorant).
