Taking Azure from Cool to Sub-Zero Infrastructure as Code

Thanks to everyone who attended my session on Infrastructure as Code with Microsoft Azure at IT/Dev Connections in San Francisco. I hope you found the session useful and left knowing more than when you arrived. As promised in the session, here is a post detailing all the things I discussed during the session. Don’t forget if you have any questions or queries just reach out to me on Twitter.


You can download the presentation I did through the IT/Dev Connections app or website. Also don’t forget you have the session recording to look back on as well.


All of the scripts and commands I showed in the demos are on my GitHub. Here is a quick run through of what is what. I covered a fair amount through the scripts.

Active Directory Deployment

I want to explain this section a little more rather than just link directly to the templates and files.


Don’t forget you can run template deployments using your own templates right from a URL. Just make sure you URL encode the path to the template, for example, to kick off a parameter collection for my Active Directory deployment, just use this link… Deploy to Azure

Here are the links I mentioned in the session as well:
