Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Steve Buchanan, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure DevOps Engineer: Optimize Feedback Mechanisms. I'm a Microsoft Azure MVP and a cloud architect with Avanade. This course will help you if you're going to take the Azure AZ‑400 DevOps exam at any time in the future. In this course, we're going to explore application monitoring using Azure, and some of the major topics that we'll cover as a part of this are analyzing telemetry, analyzing alerts, performing ongoing tuning to reduce meaningless alerts and ensure that the alerts you do get our actionable, and then we're going to explore live site monitoring. By the end of this course, you should have a better understanding of how you can monitor your application in Azure and how monitoring in Azure in general works. Also, before beginning this course, you should have some familiarity with Azure, as well as DevOps technologies. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to optimize feedback mechanisms in the Microsoft Azure DevOps Engineer course, at Pluralsight.
