What Terraform is NOT

Both and touch on this topic I was a bit surprised when I started looking at terraform.

Your "code" won't be agnostic to the cloud you use. So I think it shares very little with the properties of "code" I usually assume.

Still, it's a good tool that gives a language and a syntax to talk about a set of infrastructure things. But given I've heard stories about the dependency graph not being really reliable (and for sure I've already seen deploys gone wrong in the middle of the process), I ask myself if it's really worth it (for smallish infrastructures).

A nice thing I felt when using it is the fast feedback loop when trying stuff. being able to test something new from a fresh aws account using plan,apply,destroy in 5 minutes.  That's super cool indeed
