Mastering Cloud Development using Microsoft Azure

By: Roberto Freato, Marco Parenzan

Overview of this book

Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform that supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. This book starts by helping you set up a professional development environments in the cloud and integrating them with your local environment to achieve improved efficiency. You will move on to create front-end and back-end services, and then build cross-platform applications using Azure. Next you’ll get to grips with advanced techniques used to analyze usage data and automate billing operations. Following on from that, you will gain knowledge of how you can extend your on-premise solution to the cloud and move data in a pipeline. In a nutshell, this book will show you how to build high-quality, end-to-end services using Microsoft Azure. By the end of this book, you will have the skillset needed to successfully set up, develop, and manage a full-stack Azure infrastructure.

Programming the template

In our template, we can discover two needs:

  • There is a convention that is required to be followed while naming. All the resources share a common naming pattern, typically the project name.

  • For multitenant projects, or projects that share the same architecture, the template is useful for more than one project and one requirement can be rewriting the template in such a way that we can reuse it with the minimal changes.

To support these needs, ARM templates implement two features. The first one is the presence of two other objects on the JSON ARM template: variables and parameters. Variables are specific key/value pairs to be referenced in other parts of the template. Parameters are key/value pair containers, like variables, with special features to be initialized from outside the template, using the New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment command, optional parameters, or the template parameter file that can be supplied with the template.

Variables and parameters are referenced...
