  • Retrospective

Things we learned

  • Be careful about spaces in comma-delimited lists of variables
  • Be careful between underscores (_) and hyphens (-) in provider methods
  • Be aware of your available AMIs per region
  • To find AMIs run aws ec2 describe-images --owners amazon --filters 'Name=name,Values=amzn2-ami-hvm-2.0.????????-x86_64-gp2' 'Name=state,Values=available' --output json | jq -r '.Images | sort_by(.CreationDate) | last(.[]).ImageId'
  • Amazon Linux 2 DOES have vim (and other utilities) but not Git


  • Spin it all up so far
  • Look at the tf state file
  • Create a bastion and log into it

Next Steps

  • Build and push docker images
  • Make a docker install in the private subnet
  • Make an ALB for routing
  • Docker compose up on the private subnet
  • Move from that to ECS
