Introduction to Azure Resource Manager (ARM) and JSON
If you are new to ARM and JSON, and want to learn more, there’s a presentation for you to get started. Personally, I highly recommend for you have a look at this informative presentation Freddy vs JSON: Build your cloud with Azure Resource Manager. It was just presented by James Bannan at Microsoft Ignite Australia. The presentation includes a look at the tools used and the structure of ARM templates. I wish I had this when I started looking at ARM and JSON earlier this year.
