Course Overview
Hi. My name is Ben Weissman, founder and data passionist at Solisyon. Welcome to my course, Deploying Azure Resources using Bicep. Have you ever tried to deploy resources in Azure through ARM templates and found the authoring and management process confusing and complicated? Bicep is a domain‑specific language to describe Azure resources using infrastructure as code and comes with IntelliSense and other developer support to make your life easier. Bicep files can be enhanced with parameters and structured in modules to generate highly flexible and reusable code. You can even integrate your Bicep deployments with Azure Key Vault to avoid using passwords in the deployment scripts. This demo‑heavy course is your fast track to understand infrastructure as code in Azure using Bicep. Some of the major topics that we will cover include what ARM templates and how Bicep is different from JSON‑based ARM. We will take a look at the general structure and components of a Bicep file before exploring how to go beyond the basics, deploy resources at scale, and how to secure your Bicep deployments. By the end of this course, you will know how to author Bicep files and deploy any Azure resource through them. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basic concept of deploying and managing resources in Azure. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn more about using infrastructure as code in Azure through Bicep with the Deploying Azure Resources Using Bicep course, at Pluralsight.
