Terraform for the largely uninitiated

This talk is for anyone with an interest in expressing their infrastructure as code (that should be everyone). There will be an overview of Terraform and what it can do for you, as well as tips and patterns for those who are already convinced by it.
Managing your cloud infrastructure manually is something you should never, ever do. Ever. As an intelligent human you are not good at boring, repetitive tasks. Computers are dull and are great at blindly following your instructions. Let’s leave computers to manage your infrastructure.
Terraform allows you to write a shopping list of the cloud resources you want and the state you want them to be in. It’ll then go away and make your dreams reality.
Required audience experience:
Have used cloud infrastructure, such as AWS, and some programming experience.
Objective of the talk:
Apply infrastructure as code wherever possible, use Terraform to manage infrastructure, organise Terraform code in a way that facilitates reuse.
