As a developer, you might dread the thought of being asked to reconfigure servers or deploy new infrastructure but why? Treat your Infrastructure As Code!
In this talk, we’ll walk through how you can re-use your skills as a developer and apply those to the the concept of Infrastructure As Code. We’ll also cover the various benefits it can bring such as being able to version your infrastructure just like your application code.
We’ll then learn how we can apply this concept using Terraform by Hashicorp which allows us to manage and stand up your infrastructure using providers such as Microsoft Azure and Cloudflare with ease.
After this talk, you’ll have learnt the concept of Infrastructure As Code and how to get started with managing your infrastructure with Terraform.
