Designing apps in the cloud requires a certain way of thinking. This language-neutral course explores using Azure resources to design complex systems, such as load balancing, caching, partitioning, content delivery networks, and performance testing.
Regardless of the language or technology, designing applications in the cloud requires a different style of thinking, and deep knowledge of cloud infrastructure and services. In this course, Cloud Patterns and Architecture for Microsoft Azure Developers, you'll learn how various Azure services can help build high-performing, scalable, and resilient applications. First, you'll delve into how to use specific Azure resources to add redundancy, fail-over, and load balancing to a system. Next, you'll discover how to use partitioning and caching to improve performance and scalability. Finally, you'll explore Content Delivery Networks, API management, and performance testing. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the knowledge of multiple resources that will help you design applications in Microsoft Azure—whatever technology you're using.

Course Overview Hi! I'm Simon Allardice, and welcome to Cloud Patterns and Architecture for Microsoft Azure Developers. This is a language-neutral course where we focus on techniques and patterns for designing and developing high-performing, scalable, and resilient cloud applications and the features of Microsoft Azure we can use to do this in whatever technology you're using. But designing applications in the cloud requires a different way of thinking and a deep understanding of Azure infrastructure and services. We'll begin with that. You'll then explore specific Azure resources to add redundancy, failover, and load balancing to a system. You'll use partitioning and caching to improve scalability and performance and implement content delivery networks, API management and performance testing. When you're finished with this course, you will have covered multiple Azure resources to consider when designing large scale applications.
