With Microsoft Azure, you can build full stack Node.js applications in the cloud. This course will teach developers with experience in AWS to adjust to the differences in the Microsoft Azure environment.
Microsoft Azure is a feature-rich alternative to Amazon AWS. In this course, Microsoft Azure Development for AWS Developers with Node.js, you will learn everything you need to know to begin building applications in Node.js on the Azure platform. First, you will cover the basics of building out a web application in Azure. Second, you will explore Azure's database options and use MongoDB with CosmosDB. Next, you will discover how to use blob storage to store image files. Finally, you will learn how to monitor your application with Application Monitoring and Application Insights. By the end of this course, you will have all of the tools you need to build a full-stack Node.js application in Microsoft Azure.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Jonathan Mills, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure Development for AWS Developers with Node.js. Now I'm a consultant, and often I have to move between AWS and Azure as different clients use different tools. And over the last several years as Microsoft Azure has grown in popularity, more and more companies are migrating to Azure from AWS. So in this course, we're going to talk about how to use your existing AWS skills in the Microsoft Azure platform. Now we're going to start out just by looking at how to build out a web application, and we're going to use Node just to get the basics of an application up and running. We're going to then connect that to Cosmos DB, and we'll use the Mongo API for interacting with Cosmos. We're going to set up a storage account, and we're going to pull images out of a storage account to display in our application, and then I'll end with a conversation about application monitoring and how you can get some insight into some of the things that are going on inside your application. And by the end of this course, you'll have all the tools you need to get going with Azure. And I'm going to assume you already know Node.js and AWS. So I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Azure with the Microsoft Azure Development for AWS Developers here, at Pluralsight.
