Let's explore Azure Bicep! ... and compare it to Hashicorp's Terraform

English Intermediate DevOps

Recently I started to explore Azure and it's tools to implement Infrastructure as Code (IaC). I use Terraform for years now, but sometimes it can be fun to break a habit ;-) In this session we will take look into Azure Bicep and compare it to Hashicorp's popular IaC tool Terraform. Chosing the right tool, that fits your needs is hard. So let's take a look into both tools to see which one you can use in your next awesome project. Additionally, we will we discover Bicep hands-on by implementing a simple static website using Azure Storage Account. This session requires at least basic knowledge of Infrastructure as code, Terraform and Azure Resource Manager (ARM).
