Azure Infrastructure as Code

Posted on Thursday, November 8, 2018

I recently was fortunate enough to attend Azure Dev Days hosted by Microsoft in Houston, Texas. I saw the Houston Azure Meetup coordinator, Adam Hems there. I happened to be talking to him about Infrastructure as Code (IaC), and turns out I missed the meetup where Sean Fitzsimmons explained the basics of Azure Infrastructure as Code. Sean happened to overhear my conversation with Adam and invited me for a two hour one on one session where he would break down the core concepts. I bring this up to say, this feels like Microsoft making a good faith effort towards customer success with their tool chain.

Who doesn't like free stuff?! I like free, especially when it comes to software. I can build my core business functionality on the shoulders of giants, and get to market quicker. Give us, us free!

The designer decided to challenge me and force me outside my comfort zone. We decided to put a spinner in a button to indicate work being done. First thought, "I don't think Xamarin.Forms does that by default." The more I stared at the design the more I thought about all the state changes that would occur.
