No matter how hard we try, Azure Resource Manager (ARM) JSON templates aren’t easy or fun to maintain for enterprise platforms and applications.

Now we can flex our Infrastructure as Code (IaC) muscles using a new tool called Azure Bicep.

Azure Bicep is a Domain Specific Language (DSL) that puts the fun back into IaC development with a simpler syntax, better code reusability and modularity.

In this talk, we start by exploring how Bicep works, how we use it, and compare it to other IaC options such as Terraform and Pulumi.

We wrap up the talk with a live demo to deploy a full-stack application to Azure.
