By providing a common language and a declarative, idempotent interface to provisioning resources in the cloud, Terraform has transformed operations. It enables infrastructure-as-code and allows operations teams to manage massive, complicated sets of resources across AWS, GCP, and more. It's no exaggeration to say that adopting Terraform can make a team many times more efficient while reducing expensive infrastructure mistakes.
"AWESOME! THANK YOU!"
However, adopting Terraform also requires that a team learn new concepts and workflows. And Terraform doesn't enforce any best practices, which instead have to be learned through hard-earned mistakes.
Our Terraform workshop will prepare your team with the base knowledge they need to leverage the tool effectively. We'll also explore the different Terraform deployment patterns, helping your team find the path that's right for them.

Engineer & Lead Trainer
Serving an extended sentence in the YAML mines. Claims innocence.
This course covers the core Terraform concepts. We recommend this course for your operations teams.
To get the most out of this subject, students should come prepared with an understanding of rudimentary Bash scripting, and the basics of cloud provisioning and Amazon Web Services.
We're infrastructure experts with a reputation for delivering great work. Here’s how we're different:
We don't just teach: we do. We've wrestled with Kubernetes, Terraform, Istio, Docker and all of the others in real production situations. We've used them in anger. We know where the tools fall down and what the documentation hides.
We believe in cloud native solutions, but we aren't beholden to any vendor. Every situation is unique, and every tool has flaws. We help you understand how the technologies work together to solve your problems. We guide you away from the tools that are hype, and toward those that have proven their worth.
That's not a typo. We don’t believe in static, podium-based training with some boring instructor talking at you.
Instead, SuperOrbital courses immerse you in an active learning environment where you can internalize the lessons through collaboration and hands-on workshops. The end result is knowledge that sticks, and a foundation for true expertise.
We dig deep into a topic, when creating our content. We tease apart every aspect, breaking it down into it's atomic parts. Then we rearrange them into an order our students can easily digest and remember. Our content goes deep, giving you a foundational understanding of how things work under the hood.
The days of hours wasted commuting to work are coming to an end, and good riddance. SuperOrbital has always been a passionately remote-first company, and we bring that to our training.
Why travel out of town to sit in a hot, crowded, uncomfortable room for days at a time? Our workshops are taken from the comfort of your own home, and at a schedule that encourages deep learning.
Each of our workshop days consists of three hours of training and a one-hour Q&A session. This helps keep the training active and inspiring, and gives plenty of time for the knowledge to gel.
Engaging with us to provide a workshop for your team is easy. Reach out to get started.
We'll schedule a time to meet, discuss your needs, your team's experience level, and how we can help. Once we agree on an outline and a delivery date, we're ready to go!
Each workshop day consists of three hours for lecture and labs, and one hour for open questions. We always have one instructor and one TA on hand to ensure things go off without a hitch.
We follow up afterward to ensure the workshop exceeded your expectations, and to help with whatever new hurdles your team may be facing.
