@faint-table-42725 just posted our first episode of “Modern Infrastructure as Code Wednesday” we’ll do one episode every Wednesday at 10am PDT. If you have ideas/topics that you’d like to see covered, let us know! https://t.co/KNpSiva1j7?amp=1

Would it be possible to make the episodes longer and providing more context?
For example Heptio/VMware attract a relatively large audience while having 1 hour 30 minutes episodes on average, often longer. Some of their series are multi-week like
- 6 episodes released until now introducing k8s concepts, and still more episodes to go.
To be more specific:
1. I find the demonstrations that appear "super easy, quick etc." less attractive than longer demonstrations of e.g. best practices on production systems, discussions of what is happening under the hood in Pulumi, and the consequences of architectural choices. Actually I believe seeing something "quick and easy" has an opposite effect on developers to what sales people imagine.
2. I would prefer copying-pasting of the code to be even more limited if possible
3. Live debugging of pitfalls is great
4. I think you take too short breaks while coding - I would like more time to be spent on discussing technical details, reaching out to AWS documentation, AWS console and internet resources would be helpful. You are very familiar with Pulumi and the desired setup, but the IDE completion and help is disappearing too quickly from the screen for me.
5. An interactive chat option would be a great addition to the longer sessions
6. It would be very helpful to have the final code from the video to be released on github
There was a set of videos that were going into my preferred direction in 2018, but they were still way too short.
What about creating a series about the whole lifetime of EKS (including updates) on AWS with secrets rotation, CI and multiple environments in a gitops way, while discussing the choices, and live debugging the encountered problems?
Or another series about working with a mix of adopted AWS resources created manually and the fresh resources created by Pulumi, across multiple accounts and adressing several types of common resources?

Thanks for all the awesome feedback!
Love the suggestions and will definitely keep them in mind for upcoming episodes
I definitely want to do some multi-part series — just wanted to get something going with the first episode

I wish there would be more real-life examples with focus on production systems in different industries and stacks, covering stacks that concern multi-tenancy, security, monitoring, zone/region redundancy, various network setups (hub&spoke, peering, VPNs, private endpoints, NVAs), organizaions/OUs/accounts vs stacks, deploy AD domain controllers, managed AD integration
also some examples of how same stack is implemented for AWS and Azure and how to manage multi-cloud stacks in general
