Project Overview

Jenkins build, which applies to Terraform code on merge to all VPCs. Previously applying was done manually, now it is with a fully automated process. After the merge, all VPCs wpould be in a consistent state in terms of security groups.

Responsibilities:
  • Took broken Terraform code and went through all workspaces, recovering broken states, moving parts between Terraform modules, adding new sets of rules, conditions, and so on;
  • Brought the code, after all the changes, to state when it could be applied safely to all VPCs (including production);
  • As of now, Jenkins checks out code after merge and runs terraform apply on all workspaces.

Project Overview

A startup that gives the end users a fully functional Windows desktop in the browser window. Everything is remote - windows is real but runs somewhere, end user uses a browser instead of standard terminal utilities to get a desktop. That was probably one of the funniest projects - the startup owner argued with his tech team, and he ended up with all AWS instances deleted (except for a few QA machines).

Skeleton

Skeleton
Responsibilities:
  • Got access to AWS, 2 QA machines without any services running, some stuff in S3, access to repositories in Bitbucket, a huge PDF document with several years of technical Skype chats, and a suspicious and frustrated business owner;
  • Got the service up and running - website, desktop streaming, etc.
