My Journey to DevOps Mastery. The focus of this post is to show how I am practically using Bicep and transitioning from ARM Template JSON files to Bicep. I am not going into the details of the language here. I will show you simple steps to get started and share a few links.
The transition from ARM Templates to using Bicep
Azure Resource Manager and ARM Templates are written in a JSON syntax that can be difficult to wrap your head around. Azure Bicep is a Domain Specific Language (DSL) that offers an abstraction over Azure Resource Manager and ARM Templates that offers support for a cleaner code syntax with better support for modularity and code re-use. Azure Bicep offers a few improvements for authoring Azure IaC over the use of ARM Template JSON. One of the major improvements is in the readability and the reduced verbosity of the syntax.

DevOps and Cloud computing are joined at the hip, now that fact is well appreciated by the organizations that engaged in SaaS cloud and developed applications in the Cloud. During the COVID crisis period, most of the organizations have started using cloud computing services and implementing a cloud-first strategy to establish their remote operations. Similarly, the extended DevOps strategy will make the development process more agile with automated test cases.
