Talk Title: Getting Started with Infrastructure-as-Code

Abstract:
This session provides an introductory look at the current state of Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) tools. In it, we'll cover a brief history of IaC and its use cases. Then we'll look at the top IaC tools, understand how they differ from each other, and discuss why an organization may want to adopt one over another. Finally, we'll wrap up with some additional resources to get you going on your IaC journey.
