Building Serverless Applications in Azure

by Mark Heath

Over the years serverless has become a buzzword, but what does it look like to build via a serverless architecture? This course will teach you how to build serverless applications in Azure, from implementing web hosting to deployment and monitoring.

What you'll learn

The serverless architectural style allows you to rapidly create scalable and cost-effective applications without the overhead of managing servers yourself. In this course, Building Serverless Applications in Azure, you'll learn about many powerful services in Azure that facilitate the implementation of a serverless architecture. First, you'll dive into a step-by-step of how a serverless application is created and how to host static web content. Next, you'll explore how to create a custom back-end code, secure the application, and how to access data. Finally, you'll discover how to automate deployment and monitor it in production. When you're finished with this course, you'll be able to apply the serverless architectural style to your own cloud applications in Azure.
