HashiCorp’s Terraform is an open source project that enables you to safely and predictably create, change, and improve production infrastructure via the CLI. Terraform codifies APIs into declarative configuration files that can be shared amongst team members, treated as code, edited, reviewed, and versioned.
Terraform Providers are the plugins written in Go that implement Terraform resources and data sources, bridging cloud APIs with Terraform's declarative configuration language. Providers are complex, and to ensure the success of our Provider developers, we create tools, APIs, and documentation to make high-quality Provider development and maintenance easier.
We want you to contribute to development and maintenance of Terraform Providers in tight collaboration with the large and growing Terraform community, utilizing operations and engineering skills to work across a diverse set of infrastructure providers.
