Bicep, ARM, Terraform, are all terms that you have likely heard as teams build Azure applications. How do you leverage these tools for a repeatable and sustainable process? This session will teach you about Infrastructure as Code and how these concepts 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 scripts and templates to define your Azure environments, use GitHub as a version control system, and use automation to deploy changes to your environments along with application code changes.

You will learn:

  • The benefits of Infrastructure as Code
  • ARM Templates and Terraform
  • About adding Infrastructure as Code to your pipeline
