Course Overview
Hello everyone. My name is Jurgen Kevelaers, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with Azure Maps. I'm an independent software architect and developer currently focused on building scalable solutions in the cloud. Today's mobile‑driven society is all about location awareness. Tracking people and assets in real time is becoming an increasingly big business. In this course, you will learn everything you need to know to start working with Azure Maps. You will see how easy it is to get a map running in your browser and discover the awesome geographical services in the map's ecosystem. Major topics that we will cover include understanding the major components in Azure Maps, embedding the JavaScript map control in the HTML page, using different kinds of layers to add content, showing a pop‑up dialog in response to an event, and leveraging the different services through the REST APIs. You don't need to know a lot before starting this course, but you should have some basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and some familiarity with the Azure portal. We will be building a fully functioning application, but you don't need any advanced tools to follow along. A simple text editor will do. By the end of this course, you will know what Azure Maps is all about and how you can use it to drive your location‑aware applications. I hope that you will join me on this Azure Maps adventure at Pluralsight.
