The course is part of this learning path
This Course will show practical applications of key Azure features to meet the programming and configuration challenges introduced by long-running tasks.
We'll start with Azure Batches and how you can use them to create large-scale, parallel, and high-performance apps in the Azure cloud. Then we'll go over Azure Queues and how they can add resiliency to your web applications. Next, you'll look at Webhooks and how they can address events in your cloud apps. Finally, we'll show you WebJobs and how they can deal with continuous processing tasks.
By the end of this Course, you should be able to understand and apply these four Azure features to solve some of the challenges you face with long-running tasks, especially in high-performance computing applications.
- Create large-scale, parallel, and high-performance apps by using Azure Batches
- Build resilient apps by using Azure Queues
- Implement code to address application events by using Azure Webhooks
- Address continuous processing tasks by using Azure WebJobs
- People pursuing the Microsoft AZ-300 (Azure Cloud Architect) certification
- IT professionals, web developers, DevOps administrators
- Basic understanding of cloud concepts
- Familiarity with web programming
- Exposure to Azure configuration (Portal, CLI, or PowerShell)

This course is intended for people who want to become Azure Solution Architects.
To get the most from this course, you should have a basic understanding of cloud computing. You should also be familiar with a web programming language and frameworks like .NET, Python, Node.js or Java. Some experience with configuring the Azure cloud would also be helpful. However, the demonstrations will be easy to follow, even if you have no previous exposure to Azure.
