Description

Course Overview

Learn Configuring Serverless Computing on Azure with this course. Allowing cloud engineers to leverage serverless technologies to deploy solutions is vital to any enterprise. In this course you will learn to do this without the hassle of maintaining actual servers or virtual machines. In addition, this course provides a true insight into the creation of a 'Function App'. This is an interesting feature because creating a basic Function App is actually deceptively easy. Develop your skills with this course by learning exactly how to create a basic Function App. 

We would recommend having an intermediate understanding of MS Azure along with knowledge of its principles and product offerings before starting, ensuring that you yield the maximum potential of the training content. This Azure training content is made up of 11 comprehensive lectures along with an overview and summary.

With Azure Logic Apps, you can automate tasks, business processes, and workflows when integrating applications, systems, data and services across enterprises and organizations. Azure Logic Apps simplifies the design and build out of scalable on-prem and cloud-based solutions for integration, data integration, system integration, enterprise application integration, or EAI, and business to business communications. Using Azure Logic Apps, you can automate workloads such as the processing and routing of product orders across on-prem systems and cloud services. You can also use Azure Logic Apps as a monitoring system to send email alerts from Office 365 to notify you when specific events occur in various systems or applications. With a gallery of over 200 connectors at your disposal, you can build enterprise-class integration solutions using Azure Logic Apps. You can leverage services such as Azure Functions, Service Bus, Office 365, storage and more when building with Azure Logic Apps. 

So how exactly does Azure Logic Apps work? Well, for starters, all logic apps are deployed and run in the cloud on Microsoft Azure. Every logic app workflow is going to start with a trigger. The trigger is the mechanism that fires when a defined event occurs. It might also fire when some new data meets a set of defined criteria. Triggers will typically include some basic form of scheduling capabilities. This is so you can specify how often your workloads run. When a trigger fires, a logic app instance is created by the logic app engine. This logic app instance then runs whatever actions are defined in the workflow. Such actions will often include things like data conversions or flow controls that include conditional statements, loops and the like. A good example of a logic app would be a process that's part of a data flow that checks to see if a record is updated. In this example, if a trigger sees an event that indicates a particular record has been updated, the trigger then fires and runs some set of defined workflow actions. 

Such actions in a typical data flow scenario might include some sort of data transformation, maybe some data updates, some decision branching like conditional if/then statements, and then finally, an email notification that notifies the proper staff of the process that has run. By leveraging the Logic Apps Designer, you can visually build logic apps. The Logic Apps Designer is available in the Azure Portal via a web browser and is also available in Visual Studio. If you want to get real creative, you can create and edit logic app definitions in JavaScript Object Notation, or JSON by using the code view editor instead. Some tasks can even be performed via PowerShell commands or with Azure Resource Manager templates. In the upcoming demonstration, you'll learn how to create an automated workflow with Azure Logic Apps.
