Improve Your Infrastructure Automation with HashiCorp Tools
HashiCorp tools are popular with DevOps engineers who want to simplify infrastructure automation. With tools like Vagrant, Terraform, Packer, and Vault, you can manage virtual machines, define declarative infrastructure as code, automate machine images, and manage secrets across your infrastructure.
Get started with Vagrant, a powerful command-line program that's used in combination with a configuration file to define, configure, and run virtual machines.

Dave Swersky is a DevOps and enterprise architect with over 20 years of IT experience.
Currently, Dave works as a solutions architect for the US Department of Agriculture, where he offers DevOps strategy consulting—including cloud and CI/CD development—enterprise architecture strategy, and application architecture and support.
Dave's first job in computing was building PCs for a retailer—back when the 486 was state of the art. He then had an opportunity to work at Microsoft Product Support, where he began to dabble in programming. (Access will always have a special place in his heart.)
He developed applications using VB for Applications, VB6, and VB.NET, in systems ranging across asset management, ERP, and web portal. He made his transition to C# while working on a content management platform and never looked back. Then, after more than ten years writing software on the .NET platform, he transitioned to enterprise architecture. His focus and passion is now DevOps and continuous delivery.
Josh Samuelson is an experienced systems administrator and DevOps engineer.
Josh has a strong background in email, DNS, MySQL, Linux, and Windows. He is a quick and eager study when it comes to new technology and emerging trends, and an excellent technical problem solver with hardware, software, and network issues. He has built and delivered training solutions for Puppet, an industry-standard IT automation platform, and is currently a DevOps engineer for HelloSign, the software company behind eSignature and other intelligent business solutions.
Chris O'Dell has been developing software with Microsoft technologies for nearly 14 years.
She currently works at Monzo helping to build the future of banking. She has led teams delivering highly available web APIs, distributed systems, and cloud-based services. She has also led teams developing internal build and deployment tooling using the unconventional mix of .NET codebases onto AWS infrastructure.
Chris promotes practices we know as continuous delivery, including test-driven development (TDD), version control, and continuous integration.
In her spare time she is learning Portuguese and to play the cello.
Chris is a co-organizer of the yearly one-day PIPELINE conference in London, a co-author of the book Continuous Delivery with Windows and .NET, and a contributor to the book Build Quality In.
