Architect, Lead Developer, and Mentor

Does it take you days to deploy your infrastructure? In this session we are going to introduce you to Azure Resource Manager and demonstrate how we create Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates using Visual Studio 2019 and then deploy the infrastructure to Azure in minutes. We are going to peek under the covers of the ARM templates to show you what is going on inside the template and why you should be implementing it today. We will look at the Azure portal and walk through the infrastructure we deployed. Lastly we will look at the Azure Resource Template Visualizer and show you a great way to use it to get you started with ARM template creation.

You will learn:

  • The structure of Azure Resource Manager templates
  • How to deploy your infrastructure with Azure Pipelines
  • Short cuts to get started quickly with Azure Resource Manager template creation
