I love IaC. It has really changed the way I code, and I don't like it when I have to go back and work on some of our older code that doesn't take advantage of it.

In our organization, we use a mix of Terraform and AWS CloudFormation (we're moving towards being a mostly AWS shop). We've also been developing our own abstraction on top of CloudFormation called Handel, which abstracts away all of the IAM permission wiring for us, because that always seems to be the hardest part of IaC in AWS. It's really been fun to watch as IaC has started to change how all of our developers work - many of them can't imagine doing anything without it!
