So lately at work I’ve been doing a lot of scripting. My supervisor has challenged me with automating everything we do with deployment of our applications and our AWS environment.
So, I’ve been using PowerShell….alot.
Some of the things I’ve done with PS:
1) Create a script to generate a new AWS Elastic Load Balancer
2) Create a script to generate a new AWS EC2 Instance and install SQL Server 2014 on it.
3) Create a script to build our source code with msbuild and octopack and then upload the resulting nupkg to our Nexus repository.
4) Download and install Chocolatey and have it automatically install one of our apps.
These things are all extremely useful! More scripts will be generated, especially as we move to AWS Cloud 2.0!
