Welcome to my monthly words. I hope you enjoy them.
💬 In this month's issue:
- Linux articles—Linux Fun and the ip command.
- Upcoming live streams
- Working with Terraform modules and outputs
- The age of the nerd (My attempt at copying the writing style of ChatGPT)
I don't really strive for it, but I guess part of me embraces the nerd. Here's a post that exemplifies that.
Come join us. ⨝ I'll try not to be too geeky. (But it's tough to do when you're running a multiplexed terminal within a virtual machine on a system that gets its electricity from a solar panel.)
I really love doing these live streams. There's a strong feeling of camaraderie between the attendees and myself. We all learn a lot and have a lot of fun!
Check out this ip command deep dive. It really digs into the command and some of the ways that I use it for work.
I'm really excited about a new video course that I just finished recording:
Hashicorp Certified Terraform Associate (003)
It should be finalized in September. Terraform is an important item in my toolkit, and I'm constantly being asked questions about it. Some of those questions concern modules. One question I was just asked recently was about root and child modules and how outputs work between them. Specifically, how to output a value from a child module to the terminal when working in the root directory. Believe it or not, it's a common question (we are tech-dweebs after all).
The short answer is that you need an output in the child module and a separate output in the root module. Then you can output the value to the CLI. The in-depth answer is explained and demonstrated in the post below:
