Course overview:

This workshop will cover the basics of Infrastructure as Code and will then dive deep into what operators should test and how resources can be tested (and verified)


The main goal of this workshop is to (re)introduce testing of operations to increase trust from deploy-time onwards.

Target audience

IT Infrastructure engineers and those interested in DevOps practices. If you have worked with Terraform before, many parts of the workshop will “click” faster, if not: no worries!

Technical requirements

Participants will require access to a computer that can run a terminal emulator like PuTTY or Participants are also encouraged to install HashiCorp Terraform and set up a Git client.

It helps to have a rudimentary understanding of “Infrastructure as Code” (IaC), but I’ll provide a refresher at the beginning of the workshop, to ensure we have the same understanding.
