What is Terraform (Video)

Terraform is HashiCorp's infrastructure as code utility. You can install it to your system and then run terraform commands directly from the terminal. It is heavily used in the IT field by DevOps personnel, systems administrators, engineers, and other technicians. It can be a huge plus on your resume.

Terraform lets you define resources and infrastructure in a very human-readable way. It’s declarative (meaning the configuration files are not explicit). Terraform will take the code and interpret it… in essence, simpler code. In short, terraform manages your infrastructure's entire lifecycle.

Learn more about the basics of Terraform at the video below. Enjoy!
