Description

Terraform is an exciting tool that allows you to quickly automate and spin up entire environments easily. The tool continues to gain traction in the community, particular in the Public Cloud space as developers can not only deploy workloads, but update the state of the entire stack. This course, Automating AWS and vSphere with Terraform, will teach how you can use Terraform to create automated deployments of resources in AWS and vSphere. First, you will learn how to install Terraform, configure Terraform providers, as well as how to deploy specific resource constructs into each of those providers. Next, you will learn how to code in the Terraform language and look at Local and Remote Provisioners. By the end of this course, you will have a fundamental understanding of Terraform which you can build upon in the Public Cloud or Private Data Center.

It’s exciting and I hope you stay with me as we walk through how you can begin using Terraform.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:(

  1. Overview of Terraform and where it is used
  2. Learn to code in Terraform
  3. Learn how to provision against AWS and vSphere
  4. Learn how to extend beyond Terraform
By the end of this course, you’ll know how to create your own Terraform modules in Terraform and have the fundamental understanding of how to code in the Terraform language. You will also have a solid foundation in using Terraform against AWS and vSphere to build and destroy workloads.

Before beginning the course you should have basic IT knowledge around AWS and vSphere. I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Terraform with the Automating AWS and vSphere with Terraform course, at Pluralsight.
