Course Outline

AZ-203T01: Develop Azure Infrastructure as a Service compute solutions

Module 1: Implement solutions that use virtual machines

Students will learn how to properly plan for VM deployment. It covers VM creation by using the Azure Portal, PowerShell, and through code. It also covers creating and using ARM templates for repeatable deployments and how to use Azure Disk Encryption to secure information on the VM.

Lessons

  • Provision VMs
  • Create ARM templates
  • Configure Azure Disk Encryption for VMs

Module 2: Implement batch jobs by using Azure Batch Services

Azure Batch creates and manages a pool of compute nodes (virtual machines), installs the applications you want to run, and schedules jobs to run on the nodes.

Lessons

  • Azure Batch overview
  • Run a batch job by using the Azure CLI and Azure Portal
  • Run batch jobs by using code

Module 3: Create containerized solutions

You can build and run modern, portable, microservices-based applications that benefit from Kubernetes orchestrating and managing the availability of those application components. Kubernetes supports both stateless and stateful applications as teams progress through the adoption of microservices-based applications.

Lessons

  • Create an Azure Managed Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster
  • Create container images for solutions
  • Publish an image to the Azure Container Registry
  • Run containers by using Azure Container Instance or AKS

AZ-203T02: Develop Azure Platform as a Service compute solution

Module 1: Create App Service web apps

Azure App Service Web Apps (or just Web Apps) is a service for hosting web applications, REST APIs, and mobile back ends. Web Apps not only adds the power of Microsoft Azure to your application, such as security, load balancing, autoscaling, and automated management.

Lessons

  • Azure App Service core concepts
  • Creating an Azure App Service web app
  • Creating background tasks by using WebJobs in Azure App Service

Module 2: Creating Azure App Service mobile apps

The Mobile Apps feature of Azure App Service gives enterprise developers and system integrators a mobile-application development platform that’s highly scalable and globally available.

Lessons

  • Getting started with mobile apps in App Service
  • Enable push notifications for your app
  • Enable offline sync for your app

Module 3: Create Azure App Service API apps

This module covers how to create and document an Azure App Service API.

Lessons

  • Creating APIs
  • Using Swagger to document an API

Module 4: Implement Azure Functions

Azure Functions is a solution for easily running small pieces of code, or

functions,

in the cloud. You can write just the code you need for the problem at hand, without worrying about a whole application or the infrastructure to run it.

Lessons

  • Azure Functions overview
  • Develop Azure Functions using Visual Studio
  • Implement durable functions

AZ-203T03: Develop for Azure Storage

Module 1: Develop solutions that use Azure Table storage

Azure Table storage is a service that stores structured NoSQL data in the cloud, providing a key/attribute store with a schemaless design. Because Table storage is schemaless, it’s easy to adapt your data as the needs of your application evolve.

Lessons

  • Azure Table storage overview
  • Authorization in Table storage
  • Table service REST API

Module 2: Develop solutions that use Azure Cosmos DB storage

This module covers Azure Cosmos DB storage. It instructs students on how it works, how to manage containers and items, and create and update documents by using code.

Lessons

  • Azure SQL overview
  • Create, read, update, and delete database tables by using code

Module 4: Develop solutions that use Microsoft Azure Blob storage

Azure Blob storage is Microsoft’s object storage solution for the cloud. Blob storage is optimized for storing massive amounts of unstructured data. Unstructured data is data that does not adhere to a particular data model or definition, such as text or binary data.

Lessons

  • Azure Blob storage overview
  • Working with Azure Blob storage

AZ-203T04: Implement Azure security

Module 1: Implement authentication
