Infrastructure as Code is becoming more prevalent every day, and if you are serious about getting to Azure in a repeatable way, you want to know all about it. Come to this session to learn about ARM Templates and Terraform and how they can enable your Azure journey.

Azure is a great platform because teams are able to very quickly create the infrastructure needed to support their applications, whether it's for development, testing, or production. As you start duplicating infrastructure across environments or you need to make changes, you need a way to automate that process and be able to track changes and how they are related to your application. This session will show you how to create ARM templates and Terraform scripts to define your Azure environments, use GitHub as a version control system, and use Azure Pipelines to deploy changes to your environments along with application code changes.

You will learn:

  • Benefits of Infrastructure as Code
  • ARM Templates and Terraform
  • Adding Infrastructure as Code to your pipeline
