NEW COURSE - JUST LAUNCHED NOV 2017
You've been working on this app for months. You finally publish it live, and you start letting people know about it. Then you have a new set of problems - checking the CPU usage, worrying about performance, almost hoping that it doesn't get too popular too fast. Do you have to spin up more servers in advance in case there is a spike in demand?
Azure Serverless apps promises to take the stress and worry about application scaling off your hands. If you code your application using logic apps, functions, messages, and events, Azure will add more server power when your application needs it, and will take care of scaling back down when you don't. And you only pay for what you use. No hourly compute charges when a server is running but not doing much.
In this course, we'll look at all of the components of an Azure Serverless app.
- Logic Apps
- Event Grid
- Azure Storage
- Messaging and Queuing
Beyond the overview, we'll also look at the Azure Portal and see live walkthroughs of creating Serverless apps. Then you'll have a chance to do it yourself using Assignments.
To be sure, Azure Serverless apps aren't perfect or for every situation. Virtual Machines aren't going away. But there are some great uses for these small functions that have specific tasks to perform, and in this course we'll look at how to add Serverless apps to your toolbox.
Who this course is for:
- Senior technical people with exposure to Azure
- Those interested in the Azure Serverless features
- Business or technical people who want to see Serverless in action
Hi there, my name is Scott Duffy. And I love making complex technical topics easy to understand.
This has been the basis of my entire career – as a developer, as a development manager, as a software architect – over the past 20 years. I spend half my time in the world of business, explaining complex technical topics to business owners and stakeholders so that they can understand and agree with my approach to solving their business problems with technical solutions. And the other half with developers, explaining the business reasons behind decisions and ensuring that any decisions made on the technical side don't restrict the business in unexpected ways.
And I'm here on Udemy to teach what I know in an approachable way. I started teaching courses in 2014, and have taught over 1,000,000 students. I am grateful every day for being able to connect with so many students in almost every country around the world.
I'm a certified Enterprise Architect and certified cloud architect. I have been developing with Microsoft technologies for 20 years, starting with Classic ASP, and all the versions of .NET. We now live in the cloud era, with Microsoft Azure being prevalent in most large enterprises. I'm certified as an Azure Architect and Developer too. As well as AWS Solution Architect Associate (SAA).
