Terraform 101 - Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

Training Summary
As enterprises seek to deploy and maintain increasingly complex cloud infrastructure, there is a necessity to use “Infrastructure as Code” (IaC) tools, like Terraform. An open- source, state management tool developed by HashiCorp, Terraform allows developers to use a common coding interface to work through their various clouds safely and efficiently. Attendees will leave being able to write and understand Terraform code (HCL), have a clear understanding of Terraform’s various components and supporting tools, as well as when to reach for Terraform over another IaC tool, such as Ansible.
Although not required, students with some experience programming, or pre-existing knowledge of cloud architecture, will most appreciate the technical nature of this hands-on course.
