Introducing Bicep PowerShell Module

As you may know I’m completely sold on Bicep, I absolutely love using it! Since a while back I use Bicep to create all my templates for Azure Deployments (as long the features I need is supported in Bicep) and I’m super excited for the upcoming release of v0.3 that will give us the missing piece of the puzzle, copy loops!

Inventory App Services enabled for VNet Integration
