Terraform Infrastructure as Code: Best Practices and Common Mistakes
Terraform is one of the most common coding platforms for managing cloud infrastructure as code. I have been using Terraform to manage infrastructure on the cloud for several years now. Additionally, I coach DevOps teams in large enterprises that implement 100% infrastructure as code. Everything in this presentation comes from experience. I'll guide you through a series of best practices including source code management, environment management, execution through pipelines, modularizing Terraform code so it can be reused across the enterprise, and much more. Additionally, I'll review common mistakes and anti-patterns so you can avoid them. This session is targeted at DevOps and DevSecOps professionals and team leads. This presentation will be ground-level and contain several coding examples. Attendees with knowledge of Terraform basics will get the most benefit.
