Azure Developer Training


Microsoft Azure Developers design, build, test, and maintain cloud solutions, such as applications and services, partnering with cloud solution architects, cloud DBAs, cloud administrators, and clients to implement these solutions.

This course teaches developers how to create end-to-end solutions in Microsoft Azure. Students will learn how to implement Azure compute solutions, create Azure Functions, implement and manage web apps, develop solutions utilizing Azure storage, implement authentication and authorization, and secure their solutions by using KeyVault and Managed Identities. Students will also learn how to connect to and consume Azure services and third-party services, and include event- and message-based models in their solutions. The course also covers monitoring, troubleshooting, and optimizing Azure solutions.

Skills measured:

  • Develop Azure compute solutions
  • Develop for Azure storage
  • Implement Azure security
  • Monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize Azure solutions
  • Connect to and consume Azure services and third-party services



Students will learn how to build a web application on the Azure 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

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

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. Lessons: Azure Blob storage core concepts; Managing the Azure Blob storage lifecycle; Working with Azure Blob 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

This module instructs students on how to use create VMs and container images to use in their solutions.
