If you're a developer or engineer looking to start building or migrating to Azure, then you're going to want the help of Azure Resource Manager (ARM). Gone are the days of submitting tickets or filling out build sheets for servers, developers can now integrate infrastructure directly into their code base. ARM allows you to deploy, manage, and monitor resources programmatically. Making the efforts of managing resources for multiple environments, applications, and configurations simple, easy, and updatable with the push of a button. In this session you will learn how to leverage native tools to deliver your application to Azure. We’ll begin by talking about the tools needed to build our new ARM templates, then you'll learn how to leverage VSTS CI/CD pipeline to deploy your templates into several environments with approval gating or simultaneously deployment. Then you'll see a demonstration of how easily and quickly a sample application can be brought from code to delivery in less than a few minutes.
