When working in an environment dealing with sensitive data and a need for data integrity, security is the first question to come up. How do you ensure your environment is locked down properly? By using tools like Terraform and Ansible you can make a locked down environment the easy thing to do.
My name is Ted Glomski and I’ve been a systems administrator in the Madison area for nine years. I have been in a wide variety of different environments - from huge environments supporting tens of thousands of servers, to smaller environments serving small groups, and everywhere in between. Currently I am working at a rapidly growing startup and trying to build a solid foundation for their developers and staff, with a dedication to making the right thing to do the easy thing to do. When I’m not working I’m politically active and playing with puppy dogs.
