About this course

A three-day (3) course designed to teach AWS (Amazon Web Services) developers how to prepare end-to-end solutions in Microsoft Azure. In this course you will construct Azure App Service Web App solutions and Azure Functions, use blob or Cosmos DB storage in solutions, implement secure cloud solutions that include user authentication and authorization, implement API management, and develop event- and message-based solutions, and monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize your Azure solutions. You will learn how developers use Azure services, with additional focus on features and tasks that differ from AWS, and what that means for you as you develop applications that will be hosted by using Azure services.
Audience profile
Students in this course are experienced AWS developers interested in Azure development

Course Outline

Module 1: Create Azure App Service Web Apps

Students will learn how 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.

Lessons

Azure App Service core concepts
Creating an Azure App Service Web App
Configuring and Monitoring App Service apps
Scaling App Service apps
Azure App Service staging environments

Module 2: Implement Azure functions

This module covers creating Functions apps, and how to integrate triggers and inputs/outputs in to the app.

Lessons

Azure Functions overview
Developing Azure Functions
Implement Durable Functions
Module 3: Develop solutions that use blob storage

Students will learn 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. Also, students will learn how to create an ARM (Azure Resource Manager) Template.

Lessons

Azure Blob storage core concepts
Managing the Azure Blob storage lifecycle
Working with Azure Blob storage
Create an Azure Resource Manager Template

Module 4: Develop solutions that use Cosmos DB storage

Students will learn 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.

Lessons

Azure Cosmos DB overview
Azure Cosmos DB data structure
Working with Azure Cosmos DB resources and data
Create and deploy ARM templates
Module 5: Create and deploy Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates

Students will learn how to create and deploy Azure Resource Manager templates that can be used to speed new deployment and create consistency across resources.

Lessons

Create and deploy ARM templates
Module 6: Implement user authentication and authorization

Students will learn how to 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.

Lessons

Implementing Microsoft identity platform
Implement Microsoft Authentication Library
Secure app configuration data by using Azure App Configuration
Module 7: Implement secure cloud solutions

This module covers how to secure the information (keys, secrets, certificates) an application uses to access resources. It also covers securing application configuration information.

Lessons

Manage keys, secrets, and certificates by using the KeyVault API
Implement Managed Identities for Azure resources
Secure app configuration data by using Azure App Configuration
Module 8: Implement API Management

Students will learn how to 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.

Lessons

Implement API Management
Defining policies for APIs
Securing your APIs
Module 9: Develop event-based solutions

Students will learn how to build applications with event-based architectures.

Lessons

Implement Azure Event Grid
Implement Azure Event Hubs
Implement Azure Notification Hub
Module 10: Develop message-based solutions

Students will learn how to build applications with message-based architectures.

Lessons

Implement solutions that use Azure Service Bus
Implement solutions that use Azure Queue Storage queues
Module 11: Monitor and optimize Azure solutions

This module teaches students how to instrument their code for telemetry.

Lessons

Applications of Azure Application Insights
Instrument an app for monitoring
We look forward to your success!!!
