Terraform is one of the hottest cloud technologies right now and epitomises what infrastructure as code is. For our latest meetup, Nic Jackson from Hashicorp, will be joining us to talk about Terraform and everything you need to know to manage your infrastructure in production.
18:30 - 18:40: Introduction by Nic Jackson.
18:45 - 19:15: Dennis McCarthy - Getting started with Terraform
19:20 - 20:00: Nic Jackson - Terraform Next Steps.
20:05: Closing comments.
In this talk, we will go beyond the basic concepts and look at some of Terraform`s features which help you develop maintainable and reusable code and also help with managing production resources. We take a deep dive into modules, remote state, workspaces and a simple workflow for running Terraform in your CI environment. By the end of this talk, you will have a good understanding of the requirements for operating your production infrastructure with Terraform.
