Totally Terraform (Or, becoming *paid* a Terraform DevOps Cloud Engineer)

Hey, I have a per-small-project job - Contracted to build things in Terraform and push them to Azure.  80% of the time, it's pretty fun. I had to teach myself Terraform, but that's what this entire blog is about; Teaching myself things and hoping for work sometimes to make money. Anyway, what do I like about Terraform? A lot.
