Declarative Infrastructure: Rethinking Cloud Native for JS
In this talk we uncover what Declarative Infrastructure means, and how it can work in TypeScript to naturally express higher-level distributed systems concepts (such as backend services, API calls, database queries, Pub/Sub messaging, caching and more), through the power of static analysis and code generation.The outcome is a fully reimagined DevOps process, with automatic infrastructure provisioning and built-in observability, that deploys straight to your own cloud.
