Hello and welcome everybody to our TNWiki Article Spotlight on Tuesday.
More and more Azure Resource Manager catches up with the classic VM model. At first its hard to become familiar with the new model if you have worked with classic VMs for several years. There is not only a VM and a cloud service. There is a network interface, the VM itself and several other components. With the classic model you can create VMs from PowerShell, from the portal or via C# code. The basis for the Resource Manager is JSON. That makes it easy to parametrize this JSON structure. But to get started a common example is to create and configure a VM. With Azure Resource Manager – Create and Configure VM, written by Girish Goudar, shows you with a lot of pictures how you can do that inside of Visual Studio.
If you want to become familiar with the Resource Manager this article has to be on your list.
