Welcome to ‘The Azure Bakery’. In this series, I’ll show you how to bake your own delicious Azure cake.

The idea behind this series is to approach Azure in an easy-to-understand and fun way. The goal is to engineer and deploy solutions in the best way possible. At the same time, we’re trying to keep it simple.


We’ll go through the foundational layers of every solution you may want to build in the future. What ingredients do you need when building these solutions?

The cake will be build up from the following layers:

Combining these layers will result in our Azure cake. We start from the bottom, going through the first layer, Azure Active Directory. And work our way through every layer, all the way to the top.

With the last layer, we’ll add resources to the ingredients of all previous layers. With these resources, the layers of the cake really come together, making it ready to serve!

We’ll go through another layer every week, so let’s get your baker’s hat and start our journey! Click here for the first layer, Azure Active Directory.
