Azure Virtual Meetup - Azure Infrastructure as Code for Beginners
Tuesday, 15 September 2020
06:00 PM - 08:30 PM
iO Associates are delighted to bring you the next instalment as co-hosts in our series of Azure Virtual Meetups. This session featured special guest speaker Mike Pfeiffer, a Microsoft Azure MVP and host of the CloudSkills.fm podcast.
Automation and governance are key concepts when it comes to working with any cloud platform. When it comes to automatically deploying infrastructure in Azure, you may ask where do I start? What are the common pitfalls?
In this session, Mike walked us through the basics of automating the Azure Cloud. He showed us practical tips and presented tons of demos aimed at beginners, giving us code samples we can use on our own. This session helped in our understanding of foundational concepts about Infrastructure as Code (IaC), and gave us a game plan on how to start our own Azure Cloud automation journey!
