Creating Azure Durable Functions ChallengePush your skills to the next level in a live environment
Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.
Azure Durable Function is an extension of Azure Function. Durable functions are stateful functions running on a serverless compute service in Microsoft Azure. You can use Azure Functions to deploy durable functions without having to think about what servers the code will run on. Durable functions are defined using an orchestrator and an entity function.
Organizations looking to create durable and stateful serverless architecture often choose to use Durable Functions as their approach to the infrastructure. Due to the flexible nature and wide availability of different programming languages, developers can create functions in the language of their choice while using the same underlying infrastructure without managing the administration aspect of it.
This lab challenge assumes familiarity with the following concepts:
- Understanding of Azure Function App
- Understanding how to create Durable Functions using Function Core Tools
If you are unfamiliar with any of the above, Cloud Academy recommends completing the labs mentioned in the prerequisites before attempting this lab challenge.
This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to interact with the Azure Durable Function to satisfy a set of requirements in a production-like Azure environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge. You will need to use both Azure Portal and the IDE to finish the challenge.
This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple-choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
