Why are things always so easy when developing locally, but a hassle when it comes to getting things to run in production?
You've created a cool web app off hours and want to share it with the world and notice that going live with said app requires some decisions to be made. You'll need to think about where you want to park this app, how to keep everything safe and secure, and not to mention how not to break the bank.
At work it's super easy because you’re surrounded with the warm embrace of the infrastructure team and their Rube Goldberg machine of application deployment.
No thinking required, finish your feature, push it up and the rest just... happens...
You know that something that complex would be overkill, but you'd like to keep a mix of simplicity, security, and automation where possible.
You could just Google "how to deploy a web application":
Soooo... many... results...
Ok, so that's not going to cut it. On top of all of that you want to know, do you use:
- Digital Ocean?
- Is there such a thing as single Kubernete?! 🤔
I'm sure within that huge pile of results there are some awesome tutorials, but who really has time to sift through all of that?
That's just the beginning. Let's not forget about keeping all of the sensitive information secure - environment variables, application secrets, passwords! - OMG 😱
Sprinkle on a bit of pricing research and 6 months later you're even more confused and no app in production.
Look, I’m not sure if a single Kubernete is a thing, but what I do know is that you're not alone in feeling overwhelmed.
No one likes to feel overwhelmed.
Don't feel overwhelmed, feel empowered, feel confident.
Imagine this - you've wrapped up your wonderful web application you know where you're going to deploy it, how much it will cost per month, and when it started to get the traffic it deserves you're covered as well.
I'm glad you asked and the answer is with my step by step screen cast (coming soon!) that prepares you to take your application live. Pick the right infrastructure, keep costs low, and have room to scale. Go from development to production with total confidence.
