Seamless Cloud Management: Hands-On Labs with Azure and Pulumi

Date : June 20
Time : 9.30 pm GMT+5.30

Platform engineering has emerged as a vital practice for organizations with sizable engineering teams, typically those with 50 or more engineers. As a natural extension of DevOps at scale, effective platform engineering provides the tools and infrastructure necessary to empower developers and development teams with self-service capabilities. This approach not only streamlines operations but also fosters innovation and efficiency within the organization.

The Importance of Platform Engineering

As organizations grow, the complexity of managing development environments and infrastructure increases exponentially. Traditional DevOps practices, while effective in smaller teams, can become bottlenecks in larger settings. Platform engineering addresses these challenges by creating a centralized platform that offers standardized environments and tools, enabling developers to deploy and manage their applications seamlessly.

Key Benefits of Platform Engineering:

  • Consistency: Ensures consistent environments across the organization.
  • Efficiency: Reduces the time developers spend on configuring and managing infrastructure.
  • Scalability: Supports the growing needs of large engineering teams.
  • Self-Service: Empowers developers to create and manage their own environments.

Using Azure Deployment Environments

One of the powerful tools in platform engineering is Azure Deployment Environments. Azure provides a robust platform that allows teams to create, manage, and share cloud resources effortlessly. In this session, we will explore how to leverage Azure Deployment Environments to create click-to-deploy templates that can be shared across your development teams.

Hands-On Labs: Creating and Sharing Cloud Resources

This session includes practical, hands-on labs designed to guide you through the process of creating cloud resources that meet your specific requirements and sharing these capabilities across your organization. By the end of this session, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge to implement these practices within your own teams.

What You’ll Learn

Infrastructure as Code Concepts for C# Developers

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is a critical component of modern platform engineering. It allows you to define and manage your infrastructure using code, making it easy to version, share, and automate deployments. In this session, we will cover:

  • Introduction to IaC: Understand the fundamentals and benefits of IaC.
  • IaC Tools for C# Developers: Explore tools and frameworks tailored for C# developers.
  • Practical Examples: Implement IaC with real-world examples and best practices.

Managing Azure Resources with Pulumi

Pulumi is an Infrastructure as Code tool that enables you to manage cloud resources using programming languages like C#, JavaScript, and Python. In this session, we will focus on managing Azure resources with Pulumi, highlighting Azure Deployment Environments:

  • Getting Started with Pulumi: Set up and configure Pulumi for Azure.
  • Creating Azure Resources: Use Pulumi to create and manage Azure resources.
  • Deployment Environments: Leverage Azure Deployment Environments to streamline resource management.

Enabling IaC Re-use Across Your Organization

One of the significant advantages of IaC is the ability to reuse code across different projects and teams. This session will demonstrate how to enable IaC re-use within your organization:

  • Creating Reusable Modules: Develop reusable modules and templates.
  • Version Control and Collaboration: Use Git and other version control systems to manage IaC code.
  • Sharing and Collaboration: Share IaC resources and best practices across teams to foster collaboration and consistency.


Platform engineering is essential for large organizations aiming to scale their DevOps practices efficiently. By leveraging tools like Azure Deployment Environments and Pulumi, and adopting Infrastructure as Code principles, you can empower your development teams with the capabilities they need to succeed. This session provides you with the practical knowledge and hands-on experience to implement these practices within your organization, driving innovation and efficiency at scale.
