A good upgrade from the fax API xpizza had to rely on, though.
Sometimes you want at least one pizza, reliably as possible, and you're willing to pay extra. Other times you may want a pizza as affordable as possible, even if it is delayed or the order may be cancelled on you. The open generic API should support this high-level configuration, and the provider should be auto-selected according to your needs.
I also see an opportunity for this in the ride-sharing space. Sometimes riders are looking for a cheap and possibly slow option, other times a premium is expected for a fast trip. In my dreams I could use an open app that understands these tradeoffs, and automatically requests a driver from Uber, Lyft, or any other Taxi provider who offers safe/fast/affordable drivers in a given area.
Plus, the ability to add a sidecar container of garlic bread and dips would be nice.
And the rolling deploys are a nice addition.
"Having pizza" would be the state TF is trying to achieve here
> “As far as I know, there is no programmatic way to destroy an existing pizza. terraform destroy is implemented on the client side, by consuming the pizza.”
(of course, you may need to use Deep Learning™️ to analyse the image from the camera to trace the outline of the remaining pizza and thus calculate %)
consider yourself lucky, it is like eating cardboard
It's gotten better. Not great. Better. If you haven't tried some recently, do so. You will be merely disappointed. But no longer hungry...
(And I know programmatically ordering food is cool and all, but I'd trudge through the snow and wait an hour if that's what it took to get something other than Dominos)
Had a dominos in Singapore, it was awful compared to the UK. I’ve not had one in the US
i personally have never tasted cardboard to my knowledge so i can't say that Dominos tastes like it, but I can say that if it does, I'm upset with myself for not spending enough time eating cardboard, because I certainly find Dominos to be quite satisfying. maybe not the best, certainly, but no, it doesn't strike me as eating cardboard. and, just out of curiosity, have you actually eaten cardboard, or are you just comparing it to what you assume cardboard must be like!
So, the thought of eating cardboard physically impacts on you? Why do you say it does, why don't you say "it doesn't seem to me like eating cardboard would be a similar experience". /s
Of course "tastes like cardboard" is just a generic phrase to indicate you think something is bland [and chewy] or unsatisfying to eat. Just like the the metaphorical way in which people talk about thoughts striking them.
In short, I find your objection silly and overly argumentative.
Domino's is perfectly good pizza. It's not mind-blowing, but it isn't inedible garbage either. I didn't eat at Domino's when I lived in Manhattan because there were more pizza places to try than you could in a lifetime, but I do eat Domino's when I'm in more rural/suburban parts of America and I've found that it is at least on par with local places.
Wework is not publicly traded so not sure why do you think its relevant.
As far as WeWork bring public or not it also doesn’t matter whether the pool of investors who have assigned it a value are private investors or the public market.
Wework not being public matters, you can look at the financials of public companies which was my point.
You cannot look at the financials of private companies so no point of commenting what private investors are doing when you cannot look at the same data.
Private investors don’t care about the fundamentals. They are just hoping to pawn their stake off to the public market to make a profit.
> Private investors don’t care about the fundamentals.
Exactly which is why there was no point in talking about private valuation.
Either way, stock valuation doesn’t determine the viability of a company as a going concern - profitability does. Did anyone think that MS wasn’t a going concern during the decade where it’s stock stagnated? Do any of the major profitable tech companies have a business model that is more less successful based on investor sentiment during the day?
Have you looked at the EPS of dominos for the last 5 years?
I was replying specifically to...
“Dominoes stock price in the last 5 years says otherwise.”
The comment wasn’t “Dominoes earnings per share in the last 5 years says otherwise”.
Alternatively, how does that explain Microsoft under Ballmer? Revenues and profits went up dramatically during his tenure but the stock price stagnated for years.
If stock price was directly correlated to profitability or business viability, Apple wouldn’t have such a low multiple compared to some of other tech darlings.
It's then up to Dominos to recognize that a correct pizza order is incomplete without a completed pizza delivery.
I always thought CloudFormation was also less extensible, but it looks like they have Lambda-based macros now, which might actually be less hassle than writing gRPC plugin servers for Terraform.
Now I need to look up how to extend Pulumi. I'm reluctant to use anything that will require generating a lot of Go code.
On the other hand I hear that CF's rollback is better at not leaving things in a busted state.
If we followed the (patently poor) advice above, CF users would not have been able to use NAT Gateways - to take one of several prominent examples - for many months following their launch. Terraform was substantially faster to support them, but being able to import resources created outside the normal mechanism for _any_ reason is an essential part of any IaC tool.
But at least you're doing it!
There are sometimes holes in Terraform coverage.
And good luck using your business support plan with AWS when something goes wonky and you’re using Terraform.
Under the hood, terraform is just using the AWS APIs. If an error occurs with them, getting support isn't an issue.
I can just imagine all of the exploited credit cards of devops engineers due to this.
But This article is pretty silly so my OP is meant to be a bit silly, tho apparently people are taking teraforming a pizza seriously.
I assume this is all contained in style guides, and various other tomes. Has any company tried doing it programmatically though???
(I know this provider isn’t from them, but it still applies nonetheless)
On topic, this seems like a good showcase of Terraforms' flexibility, and a good side project for the OP.
