Oh my. Powershell is so...forgiving but I wish it would complain just a little bit more.
I know this but it still gets me from time to time.
$octopus.Start
Is not the same as
$octopus.Start()
<sigh>

Get-Service 'Octopus Deploy' | Start-Service -wait?
Hmmm... Looks like you can deploy an ARM template from travis using the azure cli...

If its connected to an azure automation account, you can stick the passwords etc into an automation variable and encrypt it there.
(or go the whole hog and use a KeyVault, but thats probably overkill

Ahh okay. I figured there was something like that just hadn't got to a working pint of VM creation. All this is a bit scattered and I do want to bring it to one spot. There's so much in a and I want to really use it to learn it. Been thinking about working up to some Azure certification at some point.

I'm wanting to try to use VSTS for build and as much as possible to get acquainted with it, but it feels overkill for Bluefin as I go through it.
