A quick and simple demo of how to get started with Terraform to build a simple VM in EC2.
19:20 - 20:00: Nic Jackson - Terraform Next Steps.
In this talk, we will go beyond the basic concepts and look at some of Terraform`s features which help you develop maintainable and reusable code and also help with managing production resources. We take a deep dive into modules, remote state, workspaces and a simple workflow for running Terraform in your CI environment. By the end of this talk, you will have a good understanding of the requirements for operating your production infrastructure with Terraform.
