Learning infrastructure as code with Azure Bicep

Hello cloud marathoners!

I am very honored to prepare an Azure Bicep session for the Azure Dominicana meetup group and would like to thank Gregory for extending his invitation.

As you know, the Azure Bicep language brings a new Infrastructure as a Code (IaC) approach to managing your Azure resources in a clean way. In addition, we also have a classic ARM JSON template that is traditionally used to define Azure infrastructure resources in a declarative way. However, it is not easy to author and maintains ARM JSON templates when your project grows in complexity.

That is when Azure Bicep comes into play, to simplify the management of your infrastructure while re-using code. So, please join my session and I will explain to you how to start using Azure Bicep and easily manage your cloud infrastructure.

Azure Dominicana user group

“This Meetup is for all those interested in knowing and learning more about Azure and trying to keep up with the latest trends and new features.
Let’s talk together about interesting topics in our language and let’s all grow together in new knowledge and experiences!” – according to the Azure Dominicana meetup page.
