Getting Started Managing Azure with PowerShell


Using PowerShell automation with the Microsoft Azure cloud platform gives you more consistent, repeatable, and auditable controls over your cloud resources. During this course, we will explore the process of connecting Microsoft Windows PowerShell to the Microsoft Azure platform. We'll talk about the installation and authentication process, managing your Azure subscriptions, and Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Resource Groups. We will deploy an ARM JSON Template to a Resource Group, and finally demonstrate how easy it is to deploy cloud resources individually, through imperative provisioning!
