Presenter: Daniel Colon Infrastructure as Code (IaC) philosophy is becoming the standard for managing infrastructure both on-premise and in the cloud. IaC uses a template approach for provisioning IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS resources which provides many benefits such as versioning, preventing drifting and even for the quick creation of a Proof of Concept (PoC). In this presentation, Dan will cover Terraform. Terraform is a tool for building, changing and versioning infrastructure as code. With Terraform you can manage Compute, Networking, DNS and many other resources using a simple Declarative Programming Language Terraform supports all the Major Cloud Providers: AWS, Azure, CGP, etc... During this presentation Dan will go over setting up various popular resources in AWS, Azure and GCP using Terrafrom. Come join us and learn how to build and destroy your infrastructure in minutes. The deck and resources will be available in the CloudNH github repo by the session date. Audience: Developers, architects, and networking professionals interested in learning how to automate provisioning resources in different cloud providers. Technical decision makers and product planners thinking about moving the management of resources to an IaC philosophy to gain some of the many benefits such as repeatability, accountability, and agility of deployments Skills/Pre-requisites: No Cloud experience necessary. Some experience with networking will be helpful, but not required, to understand technical concepts. About Dan: Daniel has expertise in infrastructure, internet technologies, and systems integration obtained through 20 plus years of working as a manager, architect and developer on projects for mission critical back end systems that have included various cloud platforms such as SoftLayer, AWS and Azure. He has taught various courses at Northeastern University including ASP.NET, C#, and XML Web Services. He has various certifications including A+, Security+, MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure.
