Course Overview

Duration: 4 Days

This course is intended for students who have experience building vertically scaled applications.  Students should also have experience with the Microsoft Azure platform and a basic understanding of the services offered in Azure.

This course offers students the opportunity to take an existing web application and expand its functionality as part of moving it to Azure.  The course does not require any existing experience with the ASP.NET platform.  This course focuses on the architectural considerations and decisions necessary when building a highly available solution in the cloud.  This course also prepares the students for the 70-532: Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions certification exam.

Who Should Attend

The candidates targeted by this training have basic experience in implementing and monitoring Microsoft Azure solutions.  Candidates are also proficient with the development tools, techniques and approaches used to build application solutions.
