There are a lot of options for where to run your code in the Azure cloud. In this course, you will learn how the major compute options function, their benefits and drawbacks, and guidance on how to choose the right option for your application.
Choosing the right compute option in Azure can be a challenge because there are several choices and some seem to overlap. In this course, Microsoft Azure Developer: Choosing an Appropriate Compute Solution, you will acquire foundational knowledge of the major Azure Compute options. First, you will learn about Azure Virtual Machines. Next, you will discover platform as a service (PaaS) options including Web Apps, Logic Apps, and Azure Functions. Finally, you will explore how to build and deploy containers in Azure. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Azure Compute needed to make the right choice for your application compute options.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Matt Milner, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure Developer: Choosing an Appropriate Compute Solution. I'm an independent software developer and trainer focused primarily on web and cloud development. Azure has no less than five core options for hosting applications with several enhanced offerings on top of those. This course aims to help you figure out which of those options is right for you. In this course, we're going to prepare you for deploying applications to the various Azure Compute services. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include using virtual machines in Azure, hosting applications in containers using several Azure services, working with App services to host web applications, taking advantage of serverless computing in Azure with Azure Functions and logic apps. By the end of this course, you should be familiar with the various compute options in Azure and have the information to decide which is right for your application. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic application development concepts and have some general understanding of cloud computing topics. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Azure compute with courses on Azure Infrastructure as a Service with Virtual Machines, Azure App Services, and Azure Container Services including the Azure Kubernetes Service, Azure Container Registry, and Azure Service Fabric. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Azure Compute with the Microsoft Azure Developer: Choosing an Appropriate Compute Option course at Pluralsight.
