Title: Managing your Azure infrastructure with Terraform
Terraform is a cool infrastructure-as-code tool developed by Hashicorp and has become very popular in the Azure space. We start with discussing Terraform's features and compare it with Microsoft's own Bicep tool. Next, we take off by building a simple infrastructure and move quickly to an Azure enterprise architecture with platform resources and landing zones using reusable modules. By Showcasing a variety of scenarios we will talk you through all the learnings. You will learn about the main Azure-related providers available and how they can achieve your goals. Also, we will discuss a few supportive tools available to create and validate your Terraform configuration. Then, as infrastructure as code is all about governance and automation we will demonstrate how to run a Terraform workflow inside either GitHub workflows or Azure Pipelines. We will close off by touching on some features you can expect in the near future. Whether you are beginning with Terraform or you already have experience with it, this talk got you covered.

Title: Level up your Azure DevOps pipelines
Pipelines are awesome for automating everything, it doesn’t matter if you are deploying something or just want some recurring tasks to be performed. But did you know that your pipelines could be a lot better? In this talk we’ll look at Azure DevOps YAML pipelines and all the wonderful features available to us. I'll share my tips and tricks for working with these amazing pipelines. We'll start by looking at implementing rollback scenario’s and how to make parts of your pipeline reusable in other pipelines. We will also look at speeding up the pipeline by running parts in parallel. There will definitely be something new to help you improve your pipelines. So, join me and level up your pipelines too!
