About the course

Hey Cloud Gurus! If you’ve been hearing the phrase "Infrastructure of Code" too much around your DevOps circles and are curious as to what it actually means, then there’s no better place to start than Hashicorp’s Terraform.

Terraform helps you codify your infrastructure. Yes, you literally write it all down, but the best part, among many other features, is that it handles resource dependency during deployment so you don’t have to code that in at all.

It’s a DevOps tool that is in high demand, and in this course we help you get certified in Hashicorp’s Terraform and showcase to the world your IaC chops!
