With this practical book, you’ll learn how to get you up and running with Terraform, an open source tool that allows you to define infrastructure for a variety of cloud providers—including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, DigitalOcean, and others—using a simple, declarative programming language. Author Yevgeniy (Jim) Brikman introduces you to Terraform syntax, and shows you how to deploy and manage infrastructure with just a few CLI commands. You’ll also learn: * Why every company needs to use infrastructure-as-code * Why Terraform is preferable to Chef, Puppet, Ansible, SaltStack, and CloudFormation * How you can manage Terraform state * How to create reusable infrastructure with Terraform modules * Terraform tips & tricks: loops, if-statements, and pitfalls * How to use Terraform as a team
