You've heard the term "infrastructure as code", but what is it? How does one get started? What are some of the tools involved? This session aims to help you get started with "infrastructure as code" by giving you the basics you need. In this hands-on session, you'll first learn some fundamentals of Git, the powerful and widely-used distributed version control system, and how to collaborate with others using Git and GitHub. Then you'll move on to 3 different examples of "infrastructure as code" tools: Ansible, AWS CloudFormation, and Terraform. You'll also see how these tools might be used in conjunction with each other or with similar tools. When the session is done, you'll walk away with a better understanding of what "infrastructure as code" means and how you might put it to work in your own career.
