I was able to spend some wife points this weekend to finalize the new book “Cloud Consistency with Azure Resource Manager”.
This book is aiming to get you started with Azure Resource Manager and covers many examples on how to author templates, use functions as well as exploring many of the other aspects of Azure Resource Manager
Here’s a snapshot of the content:
About the authors
Kristian Nese | @KristianNese

Cloud Computing and Modern Application Modeling
Step 1 – Service Templates

Azure Resource Manager Templates

Explaining the template format

Adding parameter file
Idempotency with Azure Resource Manager
Imperative Deployment with Azure Resource Manager

Write once, deploy anywhere
Instead of jumping right into the authoring experience and learn how an ARM template is constructed, we wanted to give you enough context to know what’s going on in the industry, what is changing and how you should prepare yourself to take advantage of this new way of managing your cloud resoueces.
If you have been playing around with Azure already, you are probably very familiar with some of the content already. If you are new, and especially interested in Microsoft Azure Stack, you should be glad to know that everything you learn in this book can be addressed there as well.
It has been a great experience writing this book, covering some of the most interesting stuff we have available right now, and I have to emphasize that this book will also be updated as we move forward to keep up with all the great things that is happening in the Microsoft Cloud.
I really hope you enjoy it.
