The concept of variables is simple enough to explain to kids at school (try it). It is easy to grasp but not to use in Terraform if you are an adventurous person who has experience with other programming languages (Terraform is not a programming language).
much simpler because there is no real validation (am I wrong?
), and you can’t use variables in many parts of the configurations (depends_on, providers, backend, etc.).
Dear HashiCorp, can we know when the existing experiments will be summarized? Terraform 0.14 was released in December 2020. Terraform was 15% younger and fitter back then.
