Azure Academy is a 2 day hands-on workshop given in-person across Canada.
What's in it?
Learn the core concepts of Azure App Service from an industry expert including: deployment, scalability, storage, databases (SQL and non SQL), etc.
Bring your laptop! An important part of the training is dedicated to building, deploying and managing an app together in real time (bootcamp style).
If you are in Canada we want to visit you. We are bringing the course to Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Quebec, ...
The workshop is targeted at developers experienced at building Web apps. IT Pros are welcome since they'll learn how to manage the Azure services used by the developers. You will need an Azure account but no previous experience with Azure or the Cloud is required.
WHICH AZURE SERVICES TO USE?
There are 100+ services in Azure!
The main hurdle when starting with Azure is selecting the right services from the 100+ available.
Should you deploy your Web app to App Service (Platform As A Service) or use a Virtual Machine (Infrastructure As A Service).
Looking to implement a messaging workflow? Should you use Storage queues or Service Bus queues?
Need to store data? Should you use a relational database like SQL Database or a NoSQL database like CosmosDB?
Instead of trying to cover every single Azure service, Azure Academy focuses on App Service and other services making sense for Web developers giving you a strong and concrete foundation that you can build on top of.
This technical course covers the core Azure App Service concepts and guides you to build, deploy and monitor Web applications. Azure Academy is the ideal starting point to understand and use Azure effectively. You’ll experience several demos and "code along" activities and be provided with the code throughout the workshop, as you learn how to build, deploy and monitor apps on Azure.
We're still working on the final agenda but here's a preliminary list of topics we'll likely cover: create a new App Service, deploy via FTP, continous deployment from Git, scaling up and scaling out, use deployment slots, backing up, set a domain name, install a Let's Encrypt SSL certificate, use Blob's to store images, use Storage Queues, run background tasks, use a relational data store like SQL Azure, use a No SQL data store like CosmosDB, troubleshoot using the Kudu tools, monitor using App Insights, etc.
