Excellent course (HashiCorp Vault 101 - Certified Vault Associate), recommend for anyone planning to use Vault in the future. Clear explanations from the author help to understand the concepts well. I had no experience with Vault, but with the help of this course, I was able to deploy Vault in a production environment. In addition to the course, you will also gain access to TeKanAid Community where you are able to comment and/or list questions that you have pertaining to Vault.

Hello Sam, Thank you very much for your blogs and videos about Packer and Terraform. I recently jumped into Terraform, especially for use in vSphere and I am learning every day. So while I was struggling to prepare a good Ubuntu template, I stumbled on Packer. So again, thank you very much for all your good and hard work. I absolutely believe that fine-tuning those scripts takes a lot of time.
