Hello and welcome to the Design an Application Storage and Data Access Strategy course, part of the Azure 70-534 exam prep. In this lesson we'll briefly introduce you to the topics that we're going to be covering throughout the course.
There are some pre-requisites for the course. While it isn't essential, I like to recommend a working knowledge of .NET development because it often helps to contextualize some of the topics. A basic knowledge of PowerShell is a plus, but it's not essential, and it probably goes without saying though, you should be familiar with the Azure ecosystem.
The goal of this course is to help prepare you for the design and application storage and data access strategy section of the Microsoft 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions certification.
Let's go through the topics that we're going to cover throughout the course. The first up is going to be data storage options. We'll cover mobile application back-ends. We'll talk about push notifications. We'll cover web API and web jobs. We'll cover hybrid data access patterns, and we'll talk about media services. We have a lot to cover and if you're ready to learn, then let's start in with the next lesson.
