Why this course ?
In current Cloud Industry, Terraform is considered as one of the leaders for Infrastructure as a code platform. With its flexibility and compatibility with many different cloud providers like (AWS, Azure, GoogleCloud, Digital Ocean and many others), Terraform makes it Very easy to manage the workloads that are provisioned in different cloud providers at one place.
Having the skills to write and maintain the infrastructure using Terraform gives an edge to a cloud practitioner’s profile.
In this course I have covered a lot of ground on Terraform which will help all levels of students (Beginner to pro) to get a good understanding and practical implementation.
This course is structured in an Hands On way and students who practice along with the lessons will get the most out of it.
