Cloud Technology

Azure Developer - Virtual

The cloud is taking the world by storm. Several cloud vendors are competing heavily on features and pricing. With Azure, Microsoft has created a cloud to build, test, deploy and manage applications. Since its inception about 10 years ago, Microsoft has added a tremendous amount of services to Azure and it's really hard to keep track of everything in Azure. Often, developers are asked to "move things to the cloud"… and then what? Which service do you need? What is a better solution for which problem? And… where do I even start as a developer to move my applications to Azure?

This course is aimed at developers faced with these and other Azure-related questions. During these 3 days, developers will get an overview of the services that matter for them. You will learn how to build applications with the cloud in mind. You'll understand the most commonly used services and patterns when working with Azure.

After this training, you'll be much better equipped to take your code to the cloud!
