    "Managing a production infrastructure can be complicated. Terraform takes the difficulty out of the equation and codifies the information into a workflow that can be shared by the entire team. It also takes any changes made to the infrastructure and refreshes the possible outcome. Definitely important information to know."

    "What I really appreciate about Chef is how open and helpful they are with their program. There are tons of how-to's and explanations for how everything works, and lots of tips and tricks too. That makes it really easy to get started and off the ground running without spending too much time on figuring out just the basics."

    "I remember the old days, loading my Linux boxen from 35 floppies. How the times have changed! Now, I can just create a quick config file with vi, with easily readable (anyone else remember PERL? augh!) sentences, and have a webserver and NFS share set up. Just like that. Awesome! I tried this when we went down to Haiti to help set up emergency infrastructure after the hurricane, and NixOps worked like a champ to let us quickly deploy IC centers."

    "I installed this, and couldn't understand how to use it. It should have been a hint when the website was just a bunch of marketing graphics, with no real content. How do I use "infrastructure as code"? We're a small organization of only 50 seats, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to deploy anything on a single system."

    "Awesome for UNIX command reference. I only dabble with UNIX (my Raspberry Pi for one); I learned ZENIX because of the bowling alley I used to work at use this for the lane computers; fortunately most of the basic commands are the same, and this site has not only a great reference for the most used commands, but written explanations as well, which is great for finding the right command for the context you need it for."

    "Ansible works pretty well but I wish it was a bit more user friendly. It's sort of difficult to get the hang of it and even getting the product to begin with isn't as straightforward as most apps that I'm used to using. That being said, the product works fine once you're able to figure it out enough to start using it."

    "I was looking for some of the best DevOps tools and somebody told me about MS PowerShell. I figured it was worth a shot but after trying it I think there are some better options available on the market."
