In this intermediate Microsoft skills training, Ben Finkel covers how to develop, implement, monitor, and troubleshoot resilient and scalable solutions on the Azure platform.
Azure offers a ton of great developer tools that you could use inside of the cloud. This Azure skills training covers them all. There’s Azure Cloud Services, a fully managed platform-as-a-service with everything you need to build, deploy, and scale enterprise-grade web applications. Azure has virtual machines for infrastructure as a service. And then there’s Azure Web Services for deploying apps. On top of all that, Azure provides plenty of options for storage.
This Azure training may not map to a Microsoft exam, but it's still an excellent primer for anyone interested in developing Azure Solutions according to cloud development best practices. Once you're done with this Microsoft training, you'll know how to implement websites and cloud services, create virtual machines, and design an Azure storage strategy.
This Azure services course was designed by Ben Finkel to teach the intermediate skills expected of a cloud developer, and prepare you either to become an Azure developer or cloud administrator interested in learning the code side of the cloud.
For supervisors, this Microsoft training can be used to onboard new cloud administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Microsoft reference resource.
