Have you been worrying that your existing web applications aren't good enough to take advantage of the elasticity of the cloud? Or that refactoring them is going to be very difficult? Azure App Service comes to your rescue! Azure App Service is one of the easiest ways to deploy apps to the Cloud. It provides powerful capabilities such as built-in development operations, continuous integration with Visual Studio Online and GitHub, staging and production support, and automatic patching for Azure developers to quickly create web applications. It also enables integration with on-premises or other cloud systems.
This comprehensive 2-in-1 course is concise and appropriate to use Azure building blocks to deploy your Node .js microservice-based apps to the cloud. Initially, you’ll build a sample Node .js application for Azure Cloud. You’ll also understand Azure services such as Azure Web Apps, Azure Container Services, and Cosmos DB and highlight specifics used by Node .js applications. Moving further, you’ll explore the flexibility of Azure App Service to configure and scale up your Node .js Web App. You’ll also perform necessary tests on your refactored Node .js app and deploy it to Azure. Finally, you'll set up and secure a cloud MySQL database for your web app to manage and schedule your server tasks in the background with Azure!
By the end of the course, you’ll build and launch a Node .js application using Web Apps, CosmosDB, and Container Services. Refactor Node .js Web apps and deploy, scale, and monitor them on Azure App Service.
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Modernize Node .js Web Apps with Azure App Service, covers refactoring Node .js Web apps and deploy, scale, and monitor them on Azure App Service. You will benefit from effortless CI/CD configurations and automatic deployments to staging and production environments and will have more streamlined testing and Quality Assurance processes. Also, you will easily scale your app to meet business needs (while monitoring it for errors and usage statistics with ease) through Azure's services. By the end of this course, you will be confident enough to modernize an existing Node .js web app and deploy it to Azure via App Service.
The second course, Microservice Development on Azure: Node .js, covers how to build and deploy apps with Node .js and Microsoft Azure. This course shows you step-by-step how to use Azure Building Blocks to deploy your Node.js microservice-based apps to the cloud. You will start with what cloud-native applications are and their benefits. You will also learn about the crucial reasons for developing a Node .js app and deploying it on Azure. Then you will understand different Azure services, highlight Azure building blocks used by Node .js apps, and deploy your Node .js applications on the Azure Cloud platform. Finally, you will monitor and troubleshoot your Node .js applications with Azure App Insights.
By the end of the course, you will have mastered building an application in Node .js that's based on microservices, deploying it on the Azure Cloud platform, and monitoring and troubleshooting it with Azure App Insights..
By the end of the course, you’ll build an application in Node .js based on microservices, deploy on the Azure Cloud platform: Monitor & troubleshoot with Azure App Insights.
