About

Infrastructure as Code delivers stable, quick, reliable, and reproducible environments at scale. Terraform is being increasingly used by Cloud Engineers to automate the provisioning of infrastructure across all major infrastructure providers. It treats all infrastructures as code which can be edited, shared, version-controlled, and reused across teams.

This course uses Terraform to reduce time and effort when provisioning infrastructures. You will write infrastructure code to create, change, import, and destroy resources. By following the best practices of Infrastructure as Code, you will quickly get started on your own deployments.

By the end of this course, you will be able to create and maintain complex infrastructure configurations.
