Develop for an Azure cloud model

Enrollment is Closed

Course Overview

This course is part of a series of four courses to help you prepare for Microsoft’s Azure Developer certification exam AZ-201: Develop Advanced Microsoft Azure Cloud Solutions. These courses are designed for developers who already know how to code in at least one of the Azure-supported languages.

The coursework covers how to ensure you solution meets performance expectations in Azure. It covers asynchronous processing, autoscaling, long-running tasks, and distributed transactions. Additionally, you’ll learn how to leverage Azure Search for textual content, and how to implement instrumentation and logging in your development solution.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Learn to develop for asynchronous processing and how to implement the appropriate asynchronous compute model.
  • Implement autoscaling in your solution and implement code that addresses transient state.
  • Discover how to implement large-scale, parallel and high-performance apps by using batches.
  • Learn to implement, and manage, distributed transactions.
  • Configure instrumentation in an app or service by using Application Insights and other tools

Prerequisites

  • These courses are for experienced programmers who want to develop and host solutions in Azure. Learners should have some experience with Azure and must be able to program in at least one Azure-supported language. These course focus on C#, Node.js, Azure CLI, Azure PowerShell, and JavaScript.
