Earlier this year, we introduced a new series called Az Kung Fu, and to build on that Build5Nines is adding Terraform to this project. I’m excited to share that MVP Kevin Bost is helping us by live-streaming the creating of a new Terraform Kung Fu toolkit which will be made available.

In this series, we will use an Agile process to plan and build a full Terraform Kung Fu tool kit that will help you not only get started but also provide details samples including CI/CD pipelines to Plan and Apply your Terraform in Azure.

In our first episode, we spent about 90 minutes talking about the basics of using the Azure Terraform provider to build out a set of examples for working with Resource Groups in Azure. We start with the basics and move through building a shared module to deploy multiple resource groups across regions in Azure with code reuse.
