Cloud computing is on the rise. More and more business are opting for cloud computing. The platform that is well-known in this domain is Microsoft Azure. If you’re a developer or an IT architect looking forward to make use of cloud computing, this Learning Path is for you. This Learning Path will start with a brief introduction to cloud computing with Azure and then dive into the fundamental steps such as exploring the Azure portal and managing the Azure platform. You will learn to implement the Azure Virtual Machine, and work with Resource Manager. After that, you will explore the Azure SQL Server Database, followed by seeing how to deploy, configure, and manage Azure Web Apps that connect you to the cloud.
Moving further, get on with the basics of Azure Functions. Then, learn how to create functions such as WebHooks, Azure Connected, and event processing. Moving ahead, the video demonstrates how to develop, manage, deploy, and monitor your Azure functions in almost any language such as C#, F#, Node.js, Python, PHP, as well as scripting options such as Bash, Batch, and PowerShell.
Finally, get introduced to Windows Azure storage and how it can be used to build large-scale, real-world applications in various scenarios using Azure storage services like blob, table, queue, and file. Next, this tutorial will teach you about storage accounts and the overview to client library.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will be well-versed with the intricacies of Microsoft Azure and professional at it.

This video gives a high-level overview of the Microsoft Azure public cloud platform.
This video has three main sections, helping you in understanding how to deploy more complex Azure VM architectures. It will make clear most of the deployment process in Azure relies on automation and scripts.
In this video, you will learn the following: (a) The structure of an ARM template (b) Deployment from GitHub QuickStart Templates
In this video, we are going to take a look at what Azure VM Configuration Management means, discussing several of these Configuration Management tools, describing PowerShell DSC, Azure VM Extensions, and highlighting Chef and Puppet
In this video, we are going to take a look at the current issue with using multiple identities and where Azure Active Directory can be of help.
In this video, we'll focus on the features and use cases for Azure Active Directory Application Proxy
In this video, we are going to take a look at several concepts around Azure monitoring and diagnostics
Even with several built-in monitoring and diagnostics features, Azure is sometimes limited in output, especially in a hybrid or enterprise oriented environment. That’s where Operations Management Suite (OMS) comes to the rescue!
This video is oriented around using the Azure infrastructure (IaaS) platform, to deploy Virtual Machines running SQL Server.
This video combines the management aspect of SQL databases, irrelevant from where they are running (on-premises, in-Azure VMs, or in-Azure PaaS)
This video is part of a larger section, in which you'll learn about Azure platform services. The key components you'll see are Web Apps, Mobile Apps, and Logic Apps. This first video focuses on Azure Web Apps and how to deploy and manage them.
We already discussed SQL database on Azure in a previous video. But SQL Server is not the only database technology available on Azure, as you will learn from this video.
You have an idea what Azure Functions are, but you’re not sure what all the hype is about. Can you give them a trial run without following a lot of steps?
In order to use Azure Functions you need an Azure account, but how do I sign up for an Azure account?
Before you go too crazy creating Azure Functions, you want to know how you can architect your solution without breaking the bank. How can you predict your cloud costs when you build your infrastructure using Functions?
F# is growing in popularity and is a first-class citizen in Azure Functions. How to use F# in Azure Functions?
We’ve been using triggers in our previous videos without really knowing it. We need to understand the basics of basic triggers and how we can use some basic bindings to interact with our caller.
What if you have the need to trigger your Azure Function from a stream of real-time data or from an event from Event Hub? Why would you need this and how would you do it?
Maybe, Azure Functions aren’t the ideal approach for your solution. You may be better served using Microsoft Flow, Logic Apps or Azure WebJobs. How do you decide?
In the previous video, we went over someb est practices for your Azure Functions to help with durable, performant apps. This video will now share some best practices for security.
You’re excited about serverless. You may even have ported everything over to Azure Functions in your head! Before you start shutting down your traditional servers, let’s take a sober look at some things that you should consider before you have 400 Azure Functions taking over your life.
In our previous video, we talked about some of the challenges you may have if you rely on a serverless architecture. In this video, I’m going to give you some hope; there are some practices you can follow that will help you maintain your sanity in your serverless home.
In the previous video, we gave you some best practices for a serverless architecture. Now you’re ready to start moving your big monolithic application to lightweight Functions that don’t require you to manage the infrastructure. In this video, I’ll give you some pointers on moving to a serverless architecture.
To ensure that your Azure Functions are running properly, you may want to use integration tests in your projects. How would you use them properly?
Calling a sophisticated REST endpoint is hard to set up with your browser or with an integration test. But there is a free tool that makes it super easy. It’s called Postman. How to use the Postman tool?
How can you tell if your Azure Functions are running properly? This is really important if you’re trying to maintain a reliable infrastructure.
If you’re editing Azure Functions directly in the web editor in the Azure Portal, you’re probably going to have a big problem. Is it possible to use source control to protect your function’s source code? Can you use Git to automatically deploy changes to your Azure Functions?
ARM templates for storage accounts and VMs are pretty straightforward, but they are a little tricky with Function Apps. How can we create a reusable template for our function apps?
We learn about / understand the Azure StorSimple Virtual Array. Why and where can we use it? Also we explore a few storage management technologies.
