Infrastructure as Code with Terraform course

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is becoming a much-needed way of dealing with the complexities of an organisation’s hybrid IT platform. In this course, you learn how to deal with IaC using Terraform, one of the most powerful tool for handling the Infrastructure as Code principles. This course focus on 


- why we should adopt Infrastructure as Code paradigm

- what is Terraform

- how to use Terraform with AWS and Microsoft Azure


Terraform will be introduced with a lot of hands on exercise using both AWS and Microsoft Azure providers. 



The course is divided in 2 days


- Day 1: Terraform Basics using Amazon Web Services (AWS) or  Microsoft Azure cloud providers

- Day 2: Complete project using Terraform,  Docker, Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure, GitLab: Installation of tool ready to use in one click


NOTE: It is also possible to book only Day 1. Day 1 is mandatory for Day 2.

The course is On-site (in Company) training. 

The course is based on practical usage of Terraform and therefore each participant needs to have a PC/laptop to follow up the exercises, git installation is required.


Target Audience
