Session Slides: Experts Live India – Azure at the command line

I had the opportunity to speak at the inaugural edition of Experts Live India 2019 over the weekend. It was a great experience. The organizers did a great job even when there were teething facilities issues that plagued the event right from the start. My first session was on Azure at the command line. In this session, I walked through both Az CLI 2.0 and Az PowerShell modules and explained the differences to help the audience choose the right tool for their job. The slides do not contain a huge deal of information as I preferred showing the audience a good demo to understand the differences.   The demo scripts are available at https://github.com/rchaganti/Presentations/tree/master/ExpertsLiveIN2019/AzCommandline.

It re-introduced me to shell scripting world which I loved a lot. While working my way towards mastering Azure CLI 2.0, I wrote quite a few shell scripts for managing various Azure Services. This triggered the thought that I can easily make them as recipes and write a cookbook to show how to use those recipes while explaining the concepts of Azure CLI and shell scripting. I sat on this for a while but I, finally, had the time to complete an outline and start working towards publishing the content. I will be self-publishing this on leanpub.com and I have not decided on a price yet. There is a landing page that you can visit and indicate your interest and propose a price point as well. I will make the pricing public once I have at least 3 to 4 chapters …
