We started the #CloudMarathoner community and cloud learning journey approximately 3+ years ago with few posts and followers. My main intention in starting this hashtag is to help everyone learn the #cloud #fundamentals & #architecture while sharing training resources that could help you in your awesome #cloud journey.
We ARE GROWING every month
Thank you for your continued feedback and support! Our #CloudMarathoner community is over 1600+ members strong and we are growing it every month. This community of contributors and members like Hugo Barona, Jackson Feldon, new MVP – Martin Dimovski, John Lokerse and many other leaders are able to reach and inspire many more people every day and week.
I am really excited and happy to see my session is accepted ✅ for this year’s #AzureSpringClean2023 event 🎉
What is Azure Spring Clean?
The Azure Spring Clean 2023 is an event that promotes well-managed Azure tenants. In order to achieve this goal, organizers encourage the cloud community professionals to create articles that highlight best-practices, and lessons learned, and help with some of the more difficult topics of Azure Management.
Join me this March, to learn and explore 🔍 how to organize Azure Security Services using the IaC approach with Azure Bicep.
We will look into how you could declaratively define and deploy your Azure security resources including Azure Policies to tackle real-world business problems. Thus, get yourself ready for simple yet powerful demos that will turn you into a hero.
I would highly encourage everyone to join this event and learn best practices on Azure this spring!
I hope you are all excited about the upcoming special, a month-long event. The Festive Tech Calendar 2022 Session details are coming soon!
This year, organizers are aiming for something a bit different and more joyful. It will be a joyful learning experience throughout the month of December as the event will bring you much new content from different speakers and communities around the globe.

I am very honored to prepare an Azure Bicep session for the Azure Dominicana meetup group and would like to thank Gregory for extending his invitation.
As you know, the Azure Bicep language brings a new Infrastructure as a Code (IaC) approach to managing your Azure resources in a clean way. In addition, we also have a classic ARM JSON template that is traditionally used to define Azure infrastructure resources in a declarative way. However, it is not easy to author and maintains ARM JSON templates when your project grows in complexity.
That is when Azure Bicep comes into play, to simplify the management of your infrastructure while re-using code. So, please join my session and I will explain to you how to start using Azure Bicep and easily manage your cloud infrastructure.
Azure Dominicana user group
“This Meetup is for all those interested in knowing and learning more about Azure and trying to keep up with the latest trends and new features. Let’s talk together about interesting topics in our language and let’s all grow together in new knowledge and experiences!” – according to the Azure Dominicana meetup page.
If you are also excited about this session, please register here. I hope to hear from all of you in this session and address the questions that you may have.
Please, check the meetup homepage as I have been told that the session recording is going to be uploaded soon. Thanks!
The Azure Back to School event is still in full swing and I am happy to announce my second session on this great event.
My session #2
This session is focused on new features and capabilities of Azure Bicep’s latest language. But don’t worry if you never used it before as I will have a brief introduction into what it is and where it could help you.
In this demo heavy session, I am planning to demonstrate how it is simple to create, manage a modularized Azure infrastructure-as-code, while using familiar tools.
We have both of our sessions accepted for this great event. Where we will have the following sessions:
September 1 : Getting you ready for Microsoft Azure Architect (AZ-305) exam!
As you might know, there have been a number of changes in Microsoft Azure Architect exam from the beginning of 2022. And it might be troublesome to get ready for this exam with all the digital distractions around us.
However, in this lightning talk, I will be sharing bits and tips on how to focus on the AZ-305 Designing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions exam objectives and help you to prepare.
I will share both official and community learning resources that will boost your knowledge, and hopefully help you pass this important exam with confidence. In addition, I will also share tips and tricks on how to be laser focused and fit on the day of exam.
Azure Bicep session details
The next session on September 17th is all about “What is new in Azure Bicep language?”
The Azure Bicep language brings a new Infrastructure as a Code (IaC) approach to manage your Azure resources in a clean way. We also have a classic ARM JSON template that traditionally is used to define Azure infrastructure resources in a declarative way.
However, it is not easy to author and maintain ARM JSON templates when your project grows in complexity. But, good news is – the Azure Bicep is created to simplify management of your infrastructure while reusing code.
In the demo section of my session, I will introduce new features and capabilities of Azure Bicep. I will demonstrate how it is simple to create, manage a modularized Azure infrastructure-as-code, while using familiar tools.
Thank you for stopping by and checking the announcement. I will upload those session videos into the #CloudMarathone YouTube channel soon.
