“Infrastructure as Code” as a tenet of DevOps is exciting to IT and Dev organizations alike. Imagine quickly and consistently building, tearing down, and re-building whole test/dev/production environments in the public and/or private cloud. Create and apply a text file that quickly configures storage, network, subnets, virtual machine NICs, firewall configurations, and virtual machines; all in one operation! In this session we’ll walk through the basics of building and utilizing these JSON templates, both in plain text and when driven through other tools such as Git, Git Hub, Notepad++, Visual Studio Code, and Visual Studio. This will be a demo-heavy session, leaving you with examples and do-it-yourself homework to help you continue learning this very useful new cloud-first engine.
