How many of you actually test your infrastructure code? For those that do, what benefits did you discover that testing brings to your code base?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Zigi - The context switching struggle is real
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • terratest

    Terratest is a Go library that makes it easier to write automated tests for your infrastructure code.

    Using tools like terratest and opa for kubernetes you can test your infrastructure code. Yet, during interviews whenever I ask about these tools, nobody implements them! I can't help but wonder why not? Does no one see the business value in reducing errors that make it to prod, or am I not advocating for these tools in an effective manor enough? What are your thoughts?

  • kube-monkey

    An implementation of Netflix's Chaos Monkey for Kubernetes clusters

    Exactly the kind of thing I love to see! Sounds like a great use case for a tool like kube-monkey as well.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.
