Overview/Description

Learners can explore several tools available on Azure to create infrastructure code, to manage security, and configuration drift of infrastructure in this 13-video course, used in preparation for AZ-400 Microsoft Azure DevOps Solutions certification exam. First, learners will examine infrastructure configuration management, and ARM (Azure Resource Manager) to deploy and manage resources within the Azure subscription. You will then learn to use SonarCloud and the Azure activity log to monitor drift. You will explore Microsoft's Azure Policy to create, assign, manage policies, and to enforce rules and resources in the subscription; and explore AzSK (Secure DevOps Kit for Azure) to enhance your Azure investment. Learners will observe how to use Chef, which automates how infrastructure is configured, deployed, and managed across a network. Next, learn to use PowerShell DSC to programmatically configure, deploy, and manage across your network. You will learn to manage technical debt on templates, and how to use custom script extensions to maintain configuration management. Finally, you will learn how to inspect security and compliance issues.
