Description

The Microsoft Azure App Service is their platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution. This course, Design and Implement Web Apps for Azure Solutions (70-532), covers every topic from the "Design and Implement Web Apps" objective domain of Microsoft Exam 70-532, Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions certification exam. Although the subject matter is aimed principally at solutions developers, IT ops professionals can also gain excellent new skills as well. The main concepts covered are as follows: deploying, configuring, and managing Azure web apps; configuring monitoring, analytics, diagnostics, and debugging; implementing WebJobs; and designing and implementing Azure web apps for scale and resilience. By studying this course, you'll not only prepare to pass Microsoft Exam 70-532, but you'll also gain confidence in developing solutions for the Microsoft Azure PaaS environment.

Course Overview
Hello there and welcome to my course, Design and Implement Web Apps for Azure Solution 70-532, my name is Tim Warner and I'm a full time trainer and technology evangelist at Pluralsight. This course covers every objective from the design and implement web apps domain and Microsoft exam 70-532 developing Microsoft Azure solutions. Although exam 70-532 is aimed principally at solution developers, IT OPS professionals can also derive great benefit from this course. Some of the major topics we'll cover include, deploying various web applications to the Microsoft Azure cloud, managing Azure app service service plans, configuring web apps, performing, monitoring, analytics, diagnostics and debugging, implementing web jobs, and planning for web app scale and resilience. By the end of this course you'll know precisely how to deploy, manage, optimize, and troubleshoot web apps in Microsoft Azure. We'll work in Visual Studio, Windows PowerShell, and the Azure command line interface, so you'll gain valuable experience with these tools and technologies. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basics of web development. It's okay if your experience has been entirely on premises, we'll walk you through how Azure platform is a service, PaaS works, and how it's both similar to and different from unprem. From here, you should feel more confident developing for Microsoft Azure PaaS. You should also be ready to proceed into the rest of the 70-532 learning path. Those courses are titled, Create and Manage Virtual Machines, Design and Implement Cloud Services, Design and Implement a Storage Strategy, and Manage Application in Network Services. I hope you'll join me on this journey to master Microsoft Azure Web App Development with the design and implement web apps for Azure solution 70-532 course from Pluralsight.

Configure Web Apps
Hello there and welcome to Pluralsight, my name is Tim Warren, and this module is entitled Configure Web Apps. This module is part of a larger course, which is in turn, part of learning path that covers every objective from Microsoft exam 70-532 on Azure development. The first course is a general introduction called Prepare to Pass, today we're in the Design and Implement Web Apps course, then we have courses on virtual machines, cloud services, storage, and network services. The idea here is to give you, as an Azure developer, a broad and deep understanding of Azure. Simply enough, I know that's sort of captain obvious statement, but anyway. We have quite a few modules in the web app's course, we began with deploy web apps and app service plans today we're concerned with configuring web apps, then we'll get into monitoring an analytics, diagnostics, and debugging, web jobs, and two modules on scale and resilience. We actually have a lot of work to do in this module, one half of it is going to be concerned with app settings. Defining and using app settings, connection strings, handlers, and virtual directories and how to manage web apps using the API, PowerShell, and the Azure command line interface. The second half of this module I call line of business settings, basically we're concerned with two things, one is how to get SSL TLS working on your Azure web app and two, how to attach a custom DNS domain to your site. Let's get started.

Configure Monitoring and Analytics
Hello there and welcome to Pluralsight, my name is Tim Warner and this is module is entitled Configure Monitoring and Analytics. As we normally do, let's pause just for a moment to look at the learning path for Microsoft exam 70-532 developing Azure solutions. The first is a very short course, I think it runs about an hour that gives you an introduction to the certification. We're doing the first content course now, this is concerning web apps. After which we'll get into virtual machines, cloud services, storage, and network services, a real treatment of Microsoft Azure for the developer. We're marching our way through the deploy web apps course, which began with an appropriately enough module titled Deploy Web Apps. Then we did service plans, configure web apps, today we're doing monitoring and analytics, the next module after this is diagnostics and debugging, web jobs, and then two modules on scale and resilience. We have just two 70-532 exam objectives to cover in this module. The first is endpoint monitoring, what it is, how does it work, how can it benefit you as an Azure developer, and the other is on configuring metrics and alerts. This entire theme for this module is that of a massing quantitative data regarding your Azure hosted web apps, performance, and availability, let's proceed.

Configure Web Apps for Scale and Resilience
Hi there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner, and this module is entitled Configure Web Apps for Scale and Resilience. Let's buzz through our Pluralsight learning path for Microsoft Exam 70-532, developing Microsoft Azure Solutions. The first course is very brief, and puts you into the proverbial shallow end of the pool, after which we get right into the content. We're in the final stretch of design and implement web apps today, and then the remaining courses, virtual machines, cloud services, storage strategy and network services all map one-to-one to Microsoft Learning's published exam objectives for 70-532. We're in the Deploy Web Apps Course, and let's buzz through the table of contents. We started with deploying web apps and then examine the app service plan separately, configuring web apps, monitoring and analytics, diagnostics and debugging, web jobs. Today, we're doing scale and resilience, and the final module is in Azure design patterns for scale and resilience. What do I want you to learn over the course of this module? You're going to learn how to scale Azure web apps. Specifically, we're going to learn how to scale by using schedules, built-in and custom schedules, and also by metric. The specific metrics available to you differ between Azure v1 or Azure Service Management, and Azure v2, which is Azure Resource Management. We'll also cover how to change instance size, and then the second half of the module is concerned with geo-redundancy using Azure Traffic Manager. We have quite a bit to cover as usual, so let's get started.
