I know I’m really late to post about this but in December 2021 with my friends Eléonore & Cyril we decided to participate in a hackathon by Hashicorp. The goal was pretty simple, build something in the “holidays mood” with their products. And that’s what we did 🚀 Ultimately, we got selected to talk in their Conference “HashiTalks 2021” to talk about how we used Terraform to automate our house.

At work, I needed to import lot of data in a MySQL database, instead of importing from a VPS or a local machine I decided to use S3 storage (that is also way cheaper to keep temporary data). In this tutorial, I will show you how to create the AWS infrastructure to import from S3 to RDS (Aurora) MySQL using Terraform.
