- Terraform Deep Dive on Azure
In this hands-on workshop, we'll explore how to deploy resources to azure using terraform. First we'll peek into the basics of terraform (HCL language, CLI, providers, provisioners, modules, plans, state files etc). Then in our hand-on exercise, we'll author terraform scripts to deploy virtual networks, virtual machines and app services to azure. Finally we'll walk through some azure tooling & integrations for terraform (azure cloud shell, hosted images in azure devops, azure marketplace images, VSCode extensions etc). Prerequisites: Bring your laptop (any OS is fine), preferably with the azure CLI and terraform installed on it. Links to download required software. - Azure CLI - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cli/azure/install-azure-cli?view=azure-cli-latest - Terraform - https://www.terraform.io/downloads.html Speaker Details : Mithun Shanbag will be your speaker for the event. - Mithun is a jack-of-all-trades, splitting his time between writing code and wearing other hats for his startup. He has previously worked for Microsoft. - You can find him on twitter at https://twitter.com/mithunshanbhag and he blogs at https://mithunshanbhag.github.io/
- Deep Dive on Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Templates
In this session, we will understand what Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates are and how they are a core part of Azure Orchestration Model. We’ll build an ARM template from scratch to deploy a multi-tier solution on Azure and how to develop effective ARM template that can be reused repeatedly. You then learn some best practices when developing complex templates like nested templates, custom script extensions, DSCs and cloud-init to further automate deployments inside Azure VMs. You will also learn how to export your existing Azure footprint into an ARM template and re-purpose it for future deployments. At this end of the session, you should be comfortable in writing, understanding and managing ARM Templates. Speaker Details : Your speaker for the day will be Amit Malik.
