Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of computing services over the Internet. One of the main advantages of cloud computing is that physical IT infrastructures like servers, disk, network equipment are now virtualised. Entire IT infrastructure can now be provisioned from the browser or applications and occupies no physical space in your data centre.

Infrastructure automation, or infrastructure as code (IaC), is practice of using software tools and scripts to automate provision servers, installing software, configuring networks, defining firewall rules, etc. in virtualized IT environment like cloud computing. Developers for the first time is able to integrate infrastructure provisioning and management of their application into their application itself.

IaC is also an integral part of DevOps culture; it allows DevOps engineers to create consistent, immutable and replicable environments for development, testing and production.

In this workshop-oriented course, participants will be equipped with the concepts of IaC, and will have the opportunity to learn about the different IaC tools and write scripts to provision resources according to a set of requirements.
