About the course

HashiCorp Packer is a lightweight, open source tool for building automating machine images across multiple platforms, including AWS, Azure, and GCP, as well as popular virtualization or quasi-virtualization platforms such as Docker and VirtualBox. In this course, we explore the core components of a Packer build, such as builders and communicators, learn how to leverage these components to write portable buildfiles that work with the infrastructure we’re already using, such as the platform and provisioning toolchains, and improve parity between our existing environments.
