Description

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. This class prepares you for Terraform Certifcation.
