Thank you, Discipulus. I don't think your bibliotheca to be messy, but even if it is, it's a great resource, and as my spare time allows me, I'll dive deeper there.

Also, these other meditations you point out are very much related to the subject. Really appreciated.

My point here is that even if you use a "no-code" solution, you depend on the programmers who maintain the magic tool behind that. So, in the of the day, you'd be just transferring your dependance to a programmer that is more distant and less accessible.

    "Magic tools" are great for streamlining repetitive, error-prone work. And there's no doubt that "configuration management" across a big stable of servers is near the top of that list. But, you'd better be sure that you know at all times what is really going on. It is very, very easy to make an "innocent" mistake with these power-tools that instantly has far-flung implications. For instance, it's absolutely necessary that you put the configuration files under git version-control, and that you very-carefully track them in your change management system.
