Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is a concept that has been around for a while now and much research has been done to not only prove out the value but also how to enhance IaC implementations.

Lastly, Josh Addington, who is an Sr. Solutions Engineer at Hashicorp and will be speaking to the Day 2 operations as well as other offerings that can enhance IaC implementations.
