Learn how to deploy and manage your Azure resources with Bicep!

Have you heard about Bicep? It's our new simple language for deploying your Azure infrastructure. If you've used JSON Azure Resource Manager templates (ARM templates) before, you'll be amazed at how easy it is to work with Bicep’s clean syntax, excellent tooling, and support for flexible and modular deployments. If you haven’t deployed your Azure resources through code, now is a great time to start! You’ll gain confidence in your deployments by keeping your environments consistent, you’ll be able to rapidly deploy new copies of your infrastructure, you’ll get the benefits of a DevOps workflow, and you’ll even be able to automate your deployment by using continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines.


We've put together a ton of content on Microsoft Learn to help you understand how to use Bicep and to get the most out of expressing your infrastructure as code. Bicep enables you to quickly create flexible, reusable, and modular templates that deploy and configure your Azure resources. We've published an entire learning path that walks you through the important parts of the Bicep language. You don't need prior experience with infrastructure as code or ARM templates to get started . You’ll start by learning the basics and building a simple first Bicep file, and then build on those core concepts as you go.

That's just the beginning. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be releasing more content to help you deploy even more parts of your infrastructure programmatically and collaborate with your colleagues. You’ll learn proven techniques to build powerful templates, and lots of tips and tricks along the way. We’re also building content to help you to deploy your Bicep files by using Azure Pipelines and GitHub Actions.

It's never been easier to start expressing your Azure infrastructure as code. To get started, follow this free learning path:
