Automating infrastructure in the cloud is becoming easier all the time. There are many ways of automating and managing infrastructure in Azure. In this webcast, we will take a look at Terraform by HashiCorp and see how it compares with other available alternatives. We will explore some of the features that set it apart from other options, but also some of the challenges that users might face. Finally, we will step through some actual Terraform code and walk through the process of importing existing resources.

In the process, we will learn some basics about Azure including resource groups, service principals, and virtual networks. Be some of the first to see some of the new additions to SEC540: Cloud Security & DevOps Automation.
