This course teaches developers how to create end-to-end solutions in Microsoft Azure.
Students will learn how to implement Azure compute solutions, create Azure Functions, implement and manage web apps, develop solutions utilizing Azure storage, implement authentication and authorization, and secure their solutions by using KeyVault and Managed Identities. Students will also learn how to connect to and consume Azure services and third-party services, and include event- and message-based models in their solutions.
The course also covers monitoring, troubleshooting, and optimizing Azure solutions.
In this course students will gain the knowledge and skills needed to:
- Build a web application on the Azure App Service platform. They will learn how the platform functions and how to create, configure, scale, secure, and deploy to the App Service platform
- Create Functions apps, and how to integrate triggers and inputs/outputs in to the app
- How Azure Blob storage works, how to manage data through the hot/cold/archive blob storage lifecycle, and how to use the Azure Blob storage client library to manage data and metadata
- How Cosmos DB is structured and how data consistency is managed. Students will also learn how to create Cosmos DB accounts and create databases, containers, and items by using a mix of the Azure Portal and the .NET SDK
- Use create VMs and container images to use in their solutions. It covers creating VMs, using ARM templates to automate resource deployment, create and manage Docker images, publishing an image to the Azure Container Registry, and running a container in Azure Container Instances
- Leverage the Microsoft Identity Platform v2.0 to manage authentication and access to resources. Students will also learn how to use the Microsoft Authentication Library and Microsoft Graph to authenticate a user and retrieve information stored in Azure, and how and when to use Shared Access Signatures
- Secure the information (keys, secrets, certificates) an application uses to access resources. It also covers securing application configuration information
- Publish APIs, create policies to manage information shared through the API, and to manage access to their APIs by using the Azure API Management service
- Use Azure Logic Apps to schedule, automate, and orchestrate tasks, business processes, workflows, and services across enterprises or organizations
- Build applications with event-based architectures
- Build applications with message-based architectures
- Instrument their code for telemetry and how to analyze and troubleshoot their apps
- Use different caching services to improve the performance of their apps
