Armon Dadgar (@armon), HashiCorp CTO and co-founder, and Aaron Schlesinger (@arschles) walk us through the core concepts of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and how it goes beyond what people typically think when they hear "Infrastructure." They break down the what, when, how, and why IaC makes developers’ lives easier, whether you’re running a simple application or have a complex, multi-node system. You’ll learn how you can use HashiCorp Terraform to get up and running with IaC, going from nothing to a complete carbon copy of your production environment at the click of button (read: you focus on building, testing, and deploying, not spinning up test environments and hoping they’re close to what’s in production).
