In this free lab, we embark on an exploration of Terraform fundamentals. We'll initiate our journey by understanding Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and surveying the array of tools IaC offers for the management of contemporary IT Infrastructure. The spotlight then shifts to Terraform's pivotal role in modern IT setups. Our journey continues with a guide on Terraform installation and an introduction to Hashicorp Configuration Language (HCL). Engage in our hands-on lab to familiarize yourself with HCL syntax, followed by a deep dive into Terraform essentials like Providers, Input/Output variables, Resource Attributes, and Dependencies.
Our exploration delves into Terraform's state management, its significance, and best practices. We'll then master Terraform commands and discern the nuances between Mutable and Immutable infrastructure. Lifecycle rules in Terraform come next, offering insights into resource creation management. We'll also touch upon data sources, meta arguments, and Terraform's version constraints.
A dedicated section introduces AWS, starting with foundational lectures on AWS basics, including setting up an AWS account and understanding core services like IAM, S3, and DynamoDB. Discover how Terraform can provision and manage these AWS services. Each topic, inclusive of AWS, is complemented by hands-on labs for practical application.
Our journey encompasses advanced Terraform concepts like remote state, state locking, and state storage in remote s3 backends. We'll master terraform state commands, get acquainted with the EC2 service, and understand provisioners in Terraform. The lab also covers resource taints, debugging, resource imports, Terraform modules, functions, conditional expressions, workspaces, and an overview of Terraform cloud's offerings.\
