Infrastructure-as-Code and Terraform with AWS

Creating an Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) and Terraform with AWS course involves providing participants with comprehensive knowledge of infrastructure automation principles, tools, and practices using Terraform in AWS environments. Here’s an outline for such a course:

Course Overview:

The Infrastructure-as-Code and Terraform with AWS course offers participants a hands-on learning experience in automating infrastructure provisioning, management, and deployment using Terraform on the AWS cloud platform. Participants will learn how to define infrastructure as code, leverage Terraform’s declarative syntax, and implement AWS resources and services using Terraform configurations.

Course Objectives:

  • Understand the principles and benefits of Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC)
  • Gain proficiency in using Terraform to provision and manage AWS infrastructure
  • Learn best practices for organizing, deploying, and maintaining Terraform configurations
  • Explore advanced Terraform features and techniques for managing complex AWS environments

Course Outline:

  • Introduction to Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC)
  • Overview of IaC principles and benefits
  • Understanding the challenges of manual infrastructure provisioning
  • Introduction to Terraform and its role in IaC
