Why Should I Learn Terraform?

We like you already. Asking those smart questions!

Cloud technologies are everywhere these days, and demand for people able to work with these technologies is still skyrocketing (pun intended).

If you want to get into cloud technologies, Terraform is where you should start.

Terraform is a tool for effectively and efficiently working with cloud technologies, and a pretty awesome one at that.

It's an open-source Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool, meaning you can manage your cloud infrastructure using code or configuration files.

And that means Terraform allows you to build, change, and version infrastructure efficiently and safely. Pretty cool eh?

Terraform was created by HashiCorp to manage existing and popular cloud service providers like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, as well as custom in-house cloud solutions. This has made it very popular with many companies requiring massive cloud capabilities and infrastructure.

It's also one of the most in-demand skills for DevOps Engineers and System Administrators. You know what that means: great job prospects.

There are 40,000+ job postings listed seeking DevOps Engineers with Terraform skills in the United States alone, and DevOps Engineers have an average salary of over $110,000 / year.

So if you're looking for something:

  1. With lots of job demand
  2. That's still growing in importance
  3. And can provide generous compensation

Then learning Terraform is a great option for you.

Here's what this Terraform course covers:

This course, like all Zero To Mastery courses, will constantly be updated as the landscape changes.

As the Terraform and cloud ecosystems evolve, this course will also be continually updated with lectures and resources.

This will be your go-to place to find the latest Terraform best practices and resources any time in the future.

This course will be your guide to learning Terraform, passing the Hashicorp Terraform Certification exam, and becoming a Certified Terraform Associate.

1. TERRAFORM & CLOUD FUNDAMENTALS - What is Terraform? Why is Terraform important? How is Terraform used for DevOps and SysAdmin? These questions and more are answered in detail. You've got to drill down into the basics before you can get to mastery!

You'll be introduced to the importance of cloud technologies, including Terraform and its sought-after capabilities like its ability to easily step forward or backwards through changes using version control.

Plus you'll learn everything through hands-on learning, including demos, exercises, and quizzes, so that you can be confident using your Terraform and cloud skills in the real world.

2. HASHICORP CONFIGURATION LANGUAGE - The goal of this section is to get you up to speed on the HashiCorp Configuration Language (HCL) used by Terraform.

You'll be learning how to master concepts such as types (simple, collection, structural), conditional expressions, dynamic blocks, and built-in applications that you'll be able to apply in the rest of the course and in your course project, where you'll provision infrastructure on AWS.

3. TERRAFORM REMOTE STATES - With Remote States, Terraform writes the state data to a remote data store, which can then be shared between all members of a team. If you don't even know what that means don't worry, we'll teach you!

You'll learn how to utilize Terraform Remote States to make you and your team's life so much easier, which is why it's important to explore them in-depth and have a deep understanding of how they work.

4. TERRAFORM MODULES - A Terraform Module is a set of Terraform configuration files in a single directory, and this is where the magic happens.

You'll take the next step in working with Terraform by learning everything there is to know about modules, including paramatizing and restructuring your infrastructure using modules. You'll even create your first Terraform Module from scratch.

5. HASHICORP TERRAFORM ASSOCIATE CERTIFICATION - One of the best ways to prove your Terraform knowledge is by becoming a certified Terraform Associate.

This course goes in-depth into the knowledge required to pass the certification exam and is loaded with quizzes that allow you to test and solidify your knowledge for the exam. These are vital pieces of the puzzle for you to become a Terraform master.

Plus our amazing and supportive ZTM Discord community of developers are available to help you practice and ace the certification exam!

6. BUILDING PROFESSIONAL AWS CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE WITH TERRAFORM - Throughout the course you'll be using your Terraform knowledge to provision enterprise-level cloud infrastructure on the world's most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform (AWS), which is exactly what you'll be doing out there in the real world at your job!

Plus you'll be applying all your Terraform knowledge with loads of hands-on learning and quizzes so that you can confidently apply your new skills in the real world.
