About this book

Get started with programming and using the Hashicorp Language (HCL). This book introduces you to the HCL syntax and its ecosystem then it shows you how to integrate it as part of an overall DevOps approach.

Next, you’ll learn how to implement infrastructure as code, specifically, using the Terraform template, a set of cloud infrastructure automation tools. As part of this discussion, you’ll cover Consul, a service mesh solution providing a full-featured control plane with service discovery, configuration, and segmentation functionality. You’ll integrate these with Vault to build HCL-based infrastructure as code solutions.  

Finally, you’ll use Jenkins and HCL to provision and maintain the infrastructure as code system. After reading and using Beginning HCL Programming, you'll have the know-how and source code to get started with flexible HCL for all your cloud and DevOps needs.
