In the mid 1990's the team at Netscape first created a feature that allowed browsers of the web to view the HTML that was sent by the webserver for the page you were currently browsing. I had never thought about "view source" (or it's older cousin "inspect") as a feature that someone had to come up with in a browser.
I was able to get custom built Windows Server images deployed in AWS with terraform.io today. One config file for keys, VPCs, security groups, EBS volumes, etc.
If you haven’t looked at #terraform, infrastructure as code is worth it just no avoid having to click through cloud platform web UIs!
