This week on the podcast, Dan and Kyle recap psadmin.conf 2019 and share some of the great things they learned from the conference.
The next video from psadmin.conf 2018 is available! Kyle Benson and Dan Iverson look at Terraform, a cloud provisioning tool, and show how psadmin.io uses Terraform to build training environments. Terraform works with Amazon Web Services, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Public Cloud, and many more cloud providers. Terraform can deploy a single server, or an infrastructure for 100 people, from a single command. The session will also talk about ps-terraform, an open source project to help you build PeopleSoft Images on the cloud.
We released the conference videos as a free course so you can find the videos in one place. Head over to the psadmin.io courses page and sign up. If you already signed up for the course, you can log in and the new video will be available.
