Course Description

Terraform 101: An Introduction to Infrastructure as Code Terraform is an open-source tool used for creating, managing, and deploying infrastructure as code. In recent years, it has become one of the most popular infrastructure as code tools in the industry, with its ability to automate the provisioning of cloud resources across multiple providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure. This course, Terraform 101, is an introduction to Terraform and infrastructure as code. It is designed for those who are new to Terraform or those who want to expand their knowledge of infrastructure as code. The course is intended for IT professionals, developers, and anyone interested in automating their infrastructure deployments. Throughout the course, students will learn the fundamentals of Terraform, including the basics of configuration files, the structure of Terraform code, and how to manage resources across different cloud providers. The course will also cover best practices for writing Terraform code, including version control and testing. The course will start with an introduction to infrastructure as code and how it differs from traditional infrastructure management methods. It will then dive into the basics of Terraform, including how to install and configure the tool, the structure of configuration files, and how to use Terraform to create and manage resources. Students will then learn how to use Terraform to manage resources across different cloud providers. This will include creating and managing virtual machines, load balancers, databases, and other resources. The course will also cover how to use Terraform to manage dependencies between resources, how to create reusable modules, and how to use variables to simplify Terraform code. By the end of the course, students will have a solid understanding of Terraform and infrastructure as code. They will be able to write Terraform code to create and manage resources in the cloud, and they will have the knowledge to apply best practices to their Terraform code to ensure that it is maintainable and scalable.
