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. This tutorial assume that you previously created an AWS RDS cluster and an instance in it.
