Learn how to apply Infrastructure as Code (IaC) with Terraform. Covers Web Apps, Database, VM, Kubernetes and Azure.

What you will learn

Automate infrastructure deployment to the cloud

Create Terraform templates

Working with the “Execution Plan”

Sharing and locking the State file

Deploy into dev/test and production

DevOps CI/CD pipelines for Terraform

GitOps with Atlantis

Creating and deploying Web Apps, Databases, VMs, Storage, Kubernetes clusters

Deploy to multiple cloud platforms using Modules

Troubleshooting Terraform

Applying Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

Description

Terraform is becoming the standard when it comes to deploying infrastructure into the cloud or on premise.

In this course you will learn how to create and deploy Terraform templates.

We will work with the different Terraform commands like init, plan, apply and destroy.

We’ll explore terraform features like input and output parameters, the execution plan and the remote backend state.

We’ll write templates for Web Apps, SQL Database, VMs, Storage, Kubernetes clusters and many more.

We’ll create the DevOps CI/CD pipelines using Azure DevOps and Github Actions to deploy into multiple environments: dev, test and prod.

Then we’ll implement GitOps for Terraform using Atlantis.

Along all these demonstrations you’ll also learn the Best practices in terms of security, configuration and scalability.

I hope you are ready and excited for this journey!

Bring a coffee and lets get started.
