Azure Developer Advanced Solutions Track (AZ-201)

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description

This course is designed for developers who already know how to code in at least one of the Azure-supported languages.

This course is part of a series of four courses to help you prepare for Microsoft�s Azure Developer certification exam AZ-201: Develop Advanced Microsoft Azure Cloud Solutions. These courses are designed for developers who already know how to code in at least one of the Azure-supported languages.

The coursework covers:

  • How to ensure you solution meets performance expectations in Azure. It covers asynchronous processing, autoscaling, long-running tasks, and distributed transactions. Additionally, you�ll learn how to leverage Azure Search for textual content, and how to implement instrumentation and logging in your development solution.
  • How to integrate and manage APIs by using the API Management service, configure a message-based integration architecture, and develop an application message model.
  • How to integrate Azure Cognitive Services, like Computer Vision, QnA Maker, and natural language processing in your solution. You�ll also learn how to create and manage bots using the Bot Framework and Azure portal. The course also covers leveraging Azure Time Series Insights, Stream Analytics and the IoT Hub for your IoT solution.
