Azure Web Jobs allow you to write code that can run in the background of your App Service. In this course, you'll learn how to write, publish, and manage Web Jobs and how the WebJobs SDK can simplify very complex solutions with bindings and triggers.
At the core of background web process in Azure is a thorough knowledge of Azure Web Jobs. In this course, Microsoft Azure Developer: Web Jobs, you will learn how to build, publish, and manage Web Jobs. First, you will discover how to build and package a Web Job with a website and publish it with the site. Next, you will learn how to build an independent Web Job and how to publish it to Azure. Finally, you will explore how to leverage the Azure WebJobs SDK. When you are finished with this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of Azure Web Jobs that will help you as you move forward to building background processing for your Azure Web Applications.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Matt Milner, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure Developer: Web Jobs. I'm an independent software developer and trainer, and I've been working with web technologies for 25 years. WebJobs are part of Azure App Services and run in the context of your application for no additional cost. In this course, we're going to learn all about WebJobs and how to write them and publish them into your Azure App Services. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include scheduling a WebJob through the Azure portal, creating a WebJob in Visual Studio and associating it with a website project, building an independent WebJob that's deployed to an app service, and using the WebJobs SDK to build a job that's triggered by queue messages and writes to an Azure Blob with minimal coding. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of how Azure WebJobs work and be ready to develop WebJobs of your own. Before you start this course, you should be familiar with programming in Visual Studio with C# and have some basic web development concepts. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Azure with courses on Azure Functions and serverless computing, or going deeper into Azure Web Sites and App Services. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn WebJobs with the Microsoft Azure Developer: Web Jobs course, at Pluralsight.
