Azure Loves Terraform Loves Azure

Optimizing cloud deployments means using Infrastructure as Code; for AWS, it means CloudFormation, for Azure it means ARM templates. But what if you have a multi-cloud strategy? Yes, it means you need to become an expert on each of these cloud tools. Not efficient obviously. And that's where third-party tools like Terraform can help you, in having their own IAC concepts, approach, template language and APIs. So by becoming a Terraform expert, you can optimize deployments across different clouds. Given the limited time in this session, Peter will walk you through the core concepts of using Terraform in Azure, packed with demos and making all scripts available for re-use later on.
