  5. COMMUNITY DAY MENA Introduction Infrastructure as code (IaC) is the

    process of managing and provisioning computer data centers through machine-readable definition files, rather than physical hardware configuration or interactive configuration tools. The IT infrastructure managed by this process comprises both physical equipment, such as bare-metal servers, as well as virtual machines, and associated configuration resources. The definitions may be in a version control system. It can use either scripts or declarative definitions, rather than manual processes, but the term is more often used to promote declarative approaches. Mohammed Yahya ردﺻﻣﻟا دﻣﺣﻣ- https://mhmd.io

  8. COMMUNITY DAY MENA CICD for IaC? When you design your

    software, most of the time you think about CI/CD approach to improve overall software development cycle and speed deployments up, nice! right?. But What about your IaC? You should treat your IaC the same way you do with Software, and even go the extra mile making sure that your end-end experience of updating your Infrastructure is safe, fast and reliable.

  9. Terraform Terraform is an open-source infrastructure as code software tool

    created by HashiCorp using GoLang since 2014. Users define and provision data center infrastructure using a declarative configuration language known as HashiCorp Configuration Language (HCL). Mohammed Yahya ردﺻﻣﻟا دﻣﺣﻣ- https://mhmd.io
  10. COMMUNITY DAY MENA CICD Some of our clients required that

    CI/CD pipeline solutions for Terraform should be implemented using AWS Services only, and we accepted that challenge. In the following Architecture, we describe our way of implementing Terraform CI/CD using AWS Developer Tools including AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeBuild. We used CodePipeline for designing the phases and stages of the pipeline, and use CodeBuild for Terraform interaction and automation. In the Architecture, we include some of Terraform best practices, also we assume that the source code exists in AWS CodeCommit, but can be used with other source code management systems.
