Infrastructure as code is the process of managing and provisioning Data Center infrastructure through machine-readable definition files, rather than physical hardware configuration or interactive configuration tools. This provides the benefit of consistency in deployments as well as increased speed.
A team from Northwest Mutual will go through a problem solving narrative and then show how to implement a solution through infrastructure as code. They will tie it all together with benefits to infrastructure as code and some resources that can be utilized to dig further into certifications, deeper training, etc.
