Announcing Pulumi Community Slack Archive

Creating a place for the Pulumi community to gather, ask questions, get help in real-time, and share successes has been an important part of the explosive growth we’ve seen in both users and customers. The Pulumi community slack has grown to over 7000 members and well over 200,000 messages.

Within those 200,000 messages are years of information kept behind a “walled garden” that is undiscoverable outside Slack’s search capabilities.

Today we’re announcing that our community slack is now publicly available via https://archive.pulumi.com thanks to Linen

Pulumi and RedMonk on developer-first infrastructure and why it matters

Pulumi and RedMonk on developer-first infrastructure and why it matters

What do assembly languages and the cloud have in common? Are abstractions the future of cloud computing? What does “infrastructure” really mean? And why do these questions matter to the platform engineers, infrastructure engineers, and developers who are building modern cloud applications today? Joe Duffy (Founder & CEO, Pulumi) and James Governor (Co-founder, RedMonk) recently answered these questions and more in a conversation about developer-first infrastructure. Developer-first infrastructure means empowering developers to build and deploy modern cloud applications and infrastructure through the use of software engineering practices that tame modern cloud complexity.

EKS Blueprints for Pulumi

With the launch of Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) in 2017, it is now easier than ever to build, secure, operate and maintain Kubernetes clusters in the cloud. Notably, EKS removed the need to manage and configure underlying compute resources and scaling for clusters. Further, EKS Anywhere brings many benefits to hybrid and on-premises deployments.

These developments have proved to be a huge leap forward in productivity for teams that manage cloud infrastructure, enabling them to focus their efforts on deploying applications to meet the needs of customers and stakeholders.

AWS Enterprise Container Management with Pulumi

Managing containers and Kubernetes clusters are consistently popular topic areas on the Pulumi blog and in our docs.

This includes teams that are just starting their cloud journey and spinning up their first project, as well as teams that want to modernize their apps and services with cloud-native architectures or even scale from one to many clouds.

Unlock Programmatic Control by Disabling Default Providers

As of 3.23.0, users can disable the default provider with Pulumi. So what does this mean for you? If you’ve been using Pulumi for a bit, you’ll have encountered provider resources, which are how we abstract the global state of a cloud provider. All resources have an associated provider. If no provider is supplied in the user’s code, a default provider is created to serve the resource. Explicit providers, which are defined by the user in code, allow programmatic and dynamic control of how a resource deploys into a cloud.
