Azure for Developers Training Overview

Since its inception, Microsoft has consistently added new services to Azure, making it challenging to keep track of Azure's features. Developers are often asked to "move things to the cloud," but then what? Which services do they need? What is the best solution for a particular problem? How do they even start moving their applications to Azure?

This Azure for Developers training course answers these and other Azure-related questions. Developers learn how to build applications with the cloud in mind and leverage the most commonly used services and patterns in Azure. After taking this course, students are prepared to immediately take their code to the cloud.
