Omaha Azure User Group Meeting – November’2021 – 2

The second bi-weekly meeting for the month of November’2021 took place on November 17th starting at 6 PM CST. It was an online meeting.

Title: Azure Bicep – beyond basics
Azure Bicep is a new evolving language that helps to author Azure infrastructure and maintain it.
There were tons of Azure Bicep updates from the beginning of the year that were shaped by community feedback and updates. In this session, we will go beyond basics and look into hands-on demos like; decompiling ARM templates, snippets, validation, modules, linting, etc. We will build our use cases upon these demos, and integrate security guardrails such as Azure policies into our deployment scripts.
