IaC is an approach to managing and provisioning computing infrastructure through machine-readable code and automation, rather than manual processes. In IaC, infrastructure is defined, configured, and managed using code, which can be version-controlled and treated like any other software application.
IaC provides several benefits, including improved efficiency, reduced manual errors, enhanced collaboration among teams, and greater control over infrastructure changes. Popular IaC tools and frameworks include Terraform/OpenTofu, Ansible, Puppet, and Chef, which allow organizations to manage their infrastructure as code across on-premises, hybrid, or cloud environments.
IT Wonder Lab tutorials are based on the diverse experience of Javier Ruiz, who founded and bootstrapped a SaaS company in the energy sector. His company, later acquired by a NASDAQ traded company, managed over €2 billion per year of electricity for prominent energy producers across Europe and America. Javier has over 25 years of experience in building and managing IT companies, developing cloud infrastructure, leading cross-functional teams, and transitioning his own company from on-premises, consulting, and custom software development to a successful SaaS model that scaled globally.
