IaC on Azure: why Bicep?

New in-person event from the Turchin community!

Thanks to SoftJam S.p.A., we will meet in their headquarter (Viale Cembrano 2, in Sturla) for a technical session and networking opportunity.

The appointment is on Thursday, 19 May at 18.30, with the following agenda:

  • 18.30: Wellcome & community news
  • 18.35: Technical session Infrastructure as Code su Azure: perch√© Bicep?
  • 19.30: Round table, networking and appetizer

Infrastructure as Code is a must-have nowadays: being able to describe, implement and maintain your infrastructure in the same way you manage your code is awesome. During this talk, we’ll go throught all the benefits of Bicep, a native IaC language for Azure, while compared with its main competitors. We’ll have a look to what tools we should use, and to some code samples. Then, we’ll introduce some CI/CD thoughts, to implement a pipeline to manage our infrastructure in a consistent way.

Marco Obinu, Advisory Engineer at SoftJam and Turchin community leader, will introduce us to this language.
