Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Stephen Thomas, and welcome to my course, Azure Logic Apps: Getting Started. I'm an independent consultant specializing in Microsoft integration. Logic Apps are a relatively new feature of Microsoft Azure that makes it simple to build complex workflows using one or more of the over 175 different connectors. Since the Logic Apps are serverless, you do not need to worry about server sizing. The platform will scale to meet your demand, and better yet, you're only charged for what you use. In this course, we're going to cover the role of Logic Apps in the enterprise, we're going to review different hybrid scenarios that you can create using your Logic Apps, we're going to learn the basic building blocks of creating a Logic App, and we're going to create a Logic App in a matter of minutes to detect negative feedback and receive near-instant notification. By the end of this course, you'll have learned the basics to create your own production ready Logic App to instantly drive business value. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the Azure portal and ensure you have an active Azure subscription. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Logic Apps with the Azure Logic Apps: Getting Started course, at Pluralsight.
Introduction to Microsoft Azure Logic Apps Hello. My name is Stephen Thomas. This course is called Azure Logic Apps: Getting Started. This module is the introduction module. Let's get started by taking a look at the way this course is laid out. This course has been broken down in to three modules. In module one, we'll take a look at the use case for Logic Apps inside the enterprise. In module two, we will begin to learn how to design and develop a basic logic app. In module three, we will continue to build on what we've learned in module two and end up building a production-ready logic app that can add business value right away in our enterprise. Let's take a look at the summary of this module. First off, we're going to get introduced to Wired Brain Coffee Company and take a look at the current issues they are facing with integration. We are then going to take a look at different ways to solve their problems using a variety of different technologies. Once we review the available technology options, we'll take a look at why Logic Apps is the right choice and the benefits of using them. We will then further expand upon the role of Logic Apps inside the enterprise. We're going to spend a few minutes looking at hybrid integration options using Logic Apps. Then we're going to review some of the business-to-business features that are included with Logic Apps. And last, we're going to see a demo of how Wired Brain Coffee Company uses Logic Apps to send EDI messages.
Design and Development of Logic Apps Hello. My name is Stephen Thomas, and this module is called Design and Development of Logic Apps. Let's take a look at a summary of what we're going to cover in this module. First off, we're going to get started by reviewing the basic items we need to think about before we even begin designing and building our first logic app. Then we're going to take a look at some of the specific features of Logic Apps. This includes connectors, triggers, actions, and flow control. This will give us the basic building blocks that we need in order to build our first logic app. Then we're going to take a look at the thought process that goes into designing our first logic app. And last, we're going to see a demo of putting this all together and actually building our first logic app using the Microsoft Azure web portal.
Building a Production Ready Logic App Hello. My name is Stephen Thomas, and this module is titled Building a Production Ready Logic App. Let's take a look at the summary of what we're going to learn in this module. First off, we're going to get started by taking a look at what is needed to set up a local development environment using Visual Studios to build out our logic apps. Then we're going to see a demo of setting up our local environment so that we can build and deploy logic apps. After that, we're going to talk about and look at working with JSON inside our logic app definition files. Then we're going to talk about content type and internal functions and how they are used inside our logic apps. Next, we're going to cover exception handling so we can ensure that we can recover from any errors that might happen in our process. Then we're going to cover some tips and tricks that I have learned in the past year or so that I've been working with Logic Apps. And last, we're going to see a demo of adding exception and retry logic using Visual Studios to our logic app. We will be building on our logic app that we've completed in module two. If you did not create that logic app in module two, we're going to quickly recreate it in our first demo.
