This book is for people who are involved in providing and using infrastructure to deliver and run software. You may have a background in systems and infrastructure, or in software development and delivery. Your role may be engineering, testing, architecture, or management. I’m assuming you have some exposure to cloud or virtualized infrastructure and tools for automating infrastructure using code.
Readers new to Infrastructure as Code should find this book a good introduction to the topic, although you will get the most out of it if you are familiar with how infrastructure cloud platforms work, and the basics of at least one infrastructure coding tool.
Those who have more experience working with these tools should find a mixture of familiar and new concepts and approaches. The content should create a common language and articulate challenges and solutions in ways that experienced practitioners and teams find useful.
