Azure Resource Manager (ARM) provides a way to organize and manage collections of Azure resources (e.g. VMs, PaaS services, SaaS services). ARM was made available in 2014 and has become more robust over time and is now the default implementation method for Azure resources.

ARM templates help support infrastructure as code and have become easier to create and use over the last several months. Come learn how to quickly and easily create Azure environments in ARM using PowerShell and ARM templates.
