Building an Elastic Job with Bicep

Josephine Bush flexes some muscles:

Bicep is an open-source Domain-Specific Language (DSL) that simplifies the process of deploying Azure resources. It is an abstraction layer on top of Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates, making it easier to write and understand infrastructure code. Bicep lets you describe your Azure infrastructure using a cleaner and more concise syntax than traditional ARM templates.

It’s definitely easier to read and work with Bicep than directly with ARM template JSON. Larger Bicep scripts can still be pretty confusing, but it’s definitely easier to write and maintain.
