Connecting Microsoft Forms, Microsoft Flow and Azure Runbooks together to deploy Azure ARM Templates My college courses did not revolve around learning programming languages. I studied routing, switching and infrastructure. It has been awhile since my college days and we must adapt. With the introduction of Infrastructure as Code, I have evolved and enjoy the process of build, test, repeat and eventually release. However, not all share my enthusiasm with deciphering lines of code. As such, we can make their lives a little easier by creating front ends to our Infrastructure as Code deployments. Let’s begin...

Why cloud security is better security When the ransomware attack WannaCry hit, it shook the world and brought a number of established institutions to their knees. If you watched the news unfold thinking, ‘That’ll never happen to my business’, you probably aren’t alone. But you’re also probably wrong. The truth is, the odds aren’t in your favor.
