5 Cool Things About Azure Bicep Templates
Cloud Academy Blog | Microsoft Azure
by Joe Nemer
1y ago
This should really be called everything I know about Biceps I learned from Adil Islam. I’ve been familiar with the basics of Infrastructure as Code, mostly through AWS Cloud Formation. So I was excited/terrified to learn about all the advantages you can get when using Azure Bicep when compared to just JSON-based Azure Resource Manager templates aka ARM templates(cue the upper body workout jokes / Arnold-Carl Weathers memes). As I mentioned, Adil Islam ran a fun-to-watch webinar (with included GitHub repo) where he explains the background of standard ARM vs Bicep templates and walks you through ..read more

17 Hours of Dog Food: How I Passed the Azure DevOps AZ-400 Exam
Cloud Academy Blog | Microsoft Azure
by Hallam Webber
2y ago
Taking the Azure AZ-400 exam I want to tell you how I ate dog food to pass the Microsoft Azure DevOps AZ-400 exam. I’m not talking about wolfing down a punnet of premium beef mince for dogs, but I’m referring to the practice of a company using its own product. (Coincidentally, back in the late 1980s an email titled “Eating our own dog food” was circulated within Microsoft challenging staff to increase the internal usage of the company’s own products.)   My first few assignments at Cloud Academy were putting together a couple of courses for the Azure DevOps Learning Path.
