Hello Cloud Gurus!
Automation is a key competency to get the most out of Microsoft Azure, and Azure Resource Manager (ARM) is the tool that allows you to automate the provisioning of your Azure resources. Using ARM means that you move away from slow, error-prone, manual deployments, which will save time and improve the quality of your cloud infrastructure.
This course will assume a basic existing knowledge of Azure, but will briefly cover the main ARM concepts such as resource groups, resource providers, Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), the ARM API, and ARM templates.
It will also guide you through the process of creating, executing, and debugging basic ARM templates via a number of different options including Visual Studio, PowerShell, Azure Cloud Shell, and Azure Command Line Interface (CLI).
Since this is just an introduction, we won’t be going too deep in this course, but you will gain enough knowledge and practise to start using basic templates in your projects. No prior coding experience is required, but familiarity with JSON is required and command line and/or PowerShell scripting experience is highly recommended.
