Make Changes to AWS Infrastructure Using Terraform

Hey there, Gurus! Welcome to the lab! This lab will demonstrate how easy it is to manage and destroy infrastructure in AWS with Terraform. We will first deploy the lab environment, and then we will make a couple changes to the Terraform configuration and redeploy. We will then confirm the changes were made and then delete all of the resources we deployed. Let's get started!
