About OpenText

The workshop session overall went very well. The knowledge transfer in terraform was great. Marc and Stuart were great and showed extensive expertise in the area. They answered many questions on real-world usage of terraform and general CI/CD, that helped the team understand the bigger picture. More importantly, it was clear that by the end of the workshop, the team is now thinking in terms of infrastructure as code. They are considering how we can integrate this mindset beyond just the GCP effort, but also in our existing applications and environments.

Prerequisites

Some understanding of Git; basic Linux skills; high-level understanding of CI/CD processes; familiarity with writing yaml/json is an asset.
