Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is a practice that involves the use of code and automation tools to manage, provision, and deploy infrastructure resources, such as servers, networking components, and storage. The goal of IaC is to make the process of managing infrastructure more efficient and reliable, by allowing teams to use code to automate the provisioning and management of infrastructure resources, as well as to enforce policies and standards for those resources. This approach can help organizations to reduce the amount of manual work involved in managing infrastructure, and to ensure that infrastructure is consistently configured and maintained across different environments. It also makes it easier to roll back changes and recover from failures, since the infrastructure is defined and managed using code that can be versioned and easily reproduced.

The content in this course will teach you the principles of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) to a Level 3.
