Title : The State of Azure Infrastructure as Code
If you’re working in Azure, you’ve probably heard about, been told to use, or are already using Infrastructure as Code to deploy your cloud resources. However, the last few years have seen significant growth in the options available for working with IaC in Azure. As a result, it can be very confusing to keep up to date on what’s possible and decide what tools and processes you should use.
In this session, we will explore the current state of play for Infrastructure as Code in Azure. What tools, languages and processes are available, their good and bad sides, and why and how do you choose what to use. Finally, we’ll look at real-world use cases and help you understand what might be helpful to you.
You’ll leave this session with an overview of what IaC in Azure looks like today, what you can achieve with it, and what tools and processes might be helpful to you.
