Terraform in Practice

This learning product will provide learners with the theoretical and practical skills and knowledge needed to take a learner’s cloud and system administration skills and apply it to one of the leading DevOps tools in the industry today; Terraform.

Learners will develop the foundational pre-requisite knowledge needed to work with Terraform through online self-paced videos. This includes resources that consult the basics of Linux and AWS, as well as an introduction to the practical usage of Terraform.

Following the discovery phase, learners will attend a live learning workshop. This instructor-led training will focus on the key features of Terraform; understanding how to write configurations through HCL, configuration files, infrastructure management and the branch model.

Learners will then be given a set of acceptance criteria which can be used for a workplace-focused project. A full review and showcase between a learner and technical Terraform expert will be facilitated for feedback.

The course begins with an overview of Terraform and its usage within DevOps, followed by a discussion around the Hashicorp Configuration Language. Core Terraform concepts, such as Data Types and Providers, are discussed before then going into the nuances of Terraform’s configuration syntax. Variables, resources and the use of modules is covered, before finally moving onto the popular branch model.

By the end of the course, learners will have created infrastructure through Terraform scripts, which provides a foundation to apply these skills into the workplace.
