About this Course

In this course students will gain the knowledge and skills needed to implement Azure IaaS services and features in their development solutions as well as skills needed to leverage Azure storage services and features in their development solutions.

The course covers provisioning virtual machines, using Batch Service to deploy/maintain resources, and how to create containerized solutions by using Azure Kubernetes Service. Students will learn how to create and manage Azure App Service resources, integrate push and offline sync in their mobile apps, and how to document an API



Audience


Students in this course are interested in Azure development or in passing the Microsoft Azure Developer Associate certification exam.

Software Assurance Vouchers


Yes - 3 days

Prerequisites

Before attending this course:

  • Students should have 1-2 years experience as a developer. This course assumes students know how to code and have a fundamental knowledge of Azure.
  • It is recommended that students have some experience with PowerShell or Azure CLI, working in the Azure portal, and with at least one Azure-supported programming language. Most of the examples in this course are presented in C\# .NET.

Course Outline


Module 1: Implement solutions that use virtual machines

Students will learn how to properly plan for VM deployment. It covers VM creation by using the Azure Portal, PowerShell, and through code. It also covers creating and using ARM templates for repeatable deployments and how to use Azure Disk Encryption to secure information on the VM.

Lessons

  • Provision VMs
  • Create ARM templates
  • Configure Azure Disk Encryption for VMs

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Learn how to create and deploy virtual machines by using the Azure Portal, PowerShell, and through code.
  • Learn how to create and deploy Azure Resource Manager templates by using the Azure Portal and Visual Studio.
  • Understand the different encryption options and learn how to encrypt existing and new deployments.

Module 2: Implement batch jobs by using Azure Batch Services

Azure Batch creates and manages a pool of compute nodes (virtual machines), installs the applications you want to run, and schedules jobs to run on the nodes.

Lessons

  • Azure Batch overview
  • Run a batch job by using the Azure CLI and Azure Portal
  • Run batch jobs by using code
  • Manage batch jobs by using the Batch Service API

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand how the Azure Batch service works
  • Learn how to create and run batch jobs by using the Azure CLI
  • Learn how to create and run batch jobs by using code
  • Learn how to use the Azure Batch Service API to manage jobs

Module 3: Create containerized solutions

You can build and run modern, portable, microservices-based applications that benefit from Kubernetes orchestrating and managing the availability of those application components. Kubernetes supports both stateless and stateful applications as teams progress through the adoption of microservices-based applications.

Lessons

  • Create an Azure Managed Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster
  • Create container images for solutions
  • Publish an image to the Azure Container Registry
  • Run containers by using Azure Container Instance or AKSAfter completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Learn core concepts for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
  • Learn how to deploy AKS clusters
  • Publish an image to the Azure Container Registry
  • Learn about Azure Container Instances and how to deploy to them

Module 4: Create App Service web apps

Azure App Service Web Apps (or just Web Apps) is a service for hosting web applications, REST APIs, and mobile back ends. Web Apps not only adds the power of Microsoft Azure to your application, such as security, load balancing, autoscaling, and automated management.

Lessons

  • Azure App Service core concepts
  • Creating an Azure App Service web app
  • Creating background tasks by using WebJobs in Azure App Service

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand App Service core concepts and capabilities
  • Know how to create App Service web apps by using Azure CLI, Azure Portal, and PowerShell.
  • Be able to create continuous and triggered WebJobs

Module 5: Creating Azure App Service mobile appsThe Mobile Apps feature of Azure App Service gives enterprise developers and system integrators a mobile-application development platform that's highly scalable and globally available.

Lessons

  • Getting started with mobile apps in App Service
  • Enable push notifications for your app
  • Enable offline sync for your appAfter completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Push their app on to the Mobile App service
  • How to register apps for push notifications

Module 6: Create Azure App Service API appsThis module covers how to create and document an Azure App Service API.

Lessons

  • Creating APIs
  • Using Swagger to document an API

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Know how to create an APIM instance and create a new API
  • Know how to use Swashbuckle to create Swagger objects in ASP.NET Core

Module 7: Implement Azure Functions

Azure Functions is a solution for easily running small pieces of code, or "functions," in the cloud. You can write just the code you need for the problem at hand, without worrying about a whole application or the infrastructure to run it.

Lessons

  • Azure Functions overview
  • Develop Azure Functions using Visual Studio
  • Implement durable functions

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand the core features and functionality of Azure Functions
  • Be able to create functions, bindings, and triggers
  • Know common patters for Durable Functions and be able to create them

Module 8: Develop solutions that use Azure Table storage

Azure Table storage is a service that stores structured NoSQL data in the cloud, providing a key/attribute store with a schemaless design. Because Table storage is schemaless, it's easy to adapt your data as the needs of your application evolve.

Lessons

  • Azure Table storage overview
  • Authorization in Table storage
  • Table service REST API

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand the features and uses of Azure Table storage
  • Know how to utilize Shared Key authorization
  • Know how to use the Azure Table storage REST service to manage data

Module 9: Develop solutions that use Azure Cosmos DB storage

This module covers Azure Cosmos DB storage. It instructs students on how it works, how to manage containers and items, and create and update documents by using code.

Lessons

  • Azure Cosmos DB overview
  • Managing containers and items
  • Create and update documents by using codeAfter completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Understand core features and functionality of Azure Cosmos DB
  • Be able to manage containers and items
  • Be able to create and update documents

Module 10: Develop solutions that use a relational database

SQL Database is a general-purpose relational database managed service in Microsoft Azure that supports structures such as relational data, JSON, spatial, and XML.

  • Azure SQL overview
  • Create, read, update, and delete database tables by using code

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Know how the Azure SQL Database service works
  • Be able to perform database operations by using code

Module 4: Develop solutions that use Microsoft Azure Blob storage

Azure Blob storage is Microsoft's object storage solution for the cloud. Blob storage is optimized for storing massive amounts of unstructured data. Unstructured data is data that does not adhere to a particular data model or definition, such as text or binary data.
