This course offers students the opportunity to take an existing ASP.NET MVC application and expand its functionality as part of moving it to Azure. This course focuses on developing in Azure using Storage, Cloud Services, Service Bus, Active Directory, WebSites and SQL among other features. This course also focuses on using the provided .NET SDKs, REST APIs, configuration and deployment options related to Azure.
After completing this course, students should be able to:
  • Describe Azure and the capabilities that it provides to application developers. Students should also be able to use the Management Portal to effectively navigate the Azure platform and their deployed applications.
  • Use the Management Portal to create, modify, scale and dispose of Azure services. The students will also use alternative (PowerShell, REST) methods for managing Azure services.
  • Create and host a simple website using Azure Websites. Students will explore how to monitor and manage the website using the Management Portal.
  • Build a modular web application and host it using Azure Cloud Service Web Roles.
  • Use Cloud Service Worker Roles to process data in the background. Students should also be able to use Cloud Service Cache Roles to store data in the cache.
  • Use Azure SQL to store and retrieve data.
  • Store data in Azure Table Storage.
  • Store and access multimedia files in Azure using Blob Storage.
  • Use Azure Queue Storage to queue data for asynchronous processing. Students will also explore how to use Azure Service Bus Queues for queuing data.
  • Use the Azure Service Bus Relay to connect on-premise services with client applications.
  • Use Azure Service Bus Notification Hubs to publish messages to client applications.
  • Use Azure Active Directory to implement security in a Cloud web application.
  • Deploy web applications to Azure by using WebDeploy and Service Packages.
  • Use Azure Mobile Services to provide a scalable and secure web service for mobile applications.
The developers targeted by this training are web application developers who have 6-12 months of web development experience using ASP.NET and C#. These developers are interested in deploying their ASP.NET applications to Azure, integrating the applications with the Azure services and using best practices to build a highly scalable application.
This course is intended for students who have the following experience:
  • 6-12 months experience developing ASP.NET Web applications using C#
Before attending this course, students must have the following experience:
  • ASP.NET web application development
  • C# application development
  • Resources used with enterprise web application development
  • Relational databases (SQL)
  • WCF services
