Terraform for the Absolute Beginners with Labs. In this course, we will get started with Terraform, but first, we will take a look at Infrastructure as a code Or IaC and the different types of tools available in IaC and their purpose in managing modern IT Infrastructure. 


  • Basics of AWS – Amazon Web Services like create EC2, Login to it, S3 bucket
