Terraform has emerged as a key player in the DevOps world for defining, launching, and managing infrastructure as code (IAC) across a variety of cloud and virtualization platforms, including AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure. This hands-on book is the fastest way to get up and running with Terraform.

Gruntwork co-founder Yevgeniy (Jim) Brikman walks you through dozens of code examples that demonstrate how to use Terraform’s simple, declarative programming language to deploy and manage infrastructure with just a few commands. Whether you’re a novice developer, aspiring DevOps engineer, or veteran sysadmin, this book will take you from Terraform basics to running a full tech stack capable of supporting a massive amount of traffic and a large team of developers.

  • Compare Terraform to other IAC tools, such as Chef, Puppet, Ansible, and Salt Stack
  • Use Terraform to deploy server clusters, load balancers, and databases
  • Learn how Terraform manages the state of your infrastructure and how it impacts file layout, isolation, and locking
  • Create reusable infrastructure with Terraform modules
  • Try out advanced Terraform syntax to implement loops, if-statements, and zero-downtime deployment
  • Use Terraform as a team, including best practices for writing, testing, and versioning Terraform code
