Terraform is the basic tool that every DevOps engineer needs to master in order to work efficiently with cloud providers such as Google Cloud Platform or AWS as it allows you to manage the infrastructure as if code was, with a lifecycle the ability to deploy infrastructure.

In this chapter, we saw the most important aspects of Terraform regarding the creation of virtual infrastructure. You learned enough to be able to, with the help of the online documentation, create resources and connect them in order to create much bigger projects.

Even though the examples that we followed through this chapter were pretty basic, in the next chapter, we will create a more complex infrastructure and install the required software to run it in an automated fashion.

We will also use more advanced Terraform capabilities such as modules to create highly reusable components that can be shared with different teams or even as open source components.
