Azure App Service is a fully-managed platform as a service (PaaS) for building, deploying, and scaling web, mobile, API, and even serverless apps. The App Service platform supports Windows and Linux for running applications in various languages and frameworks, such as .NET, .NET Core, Java, Ruby, Node.js, PHP, Python, and Docker containers. Azure Container App enables you to run container-based web applications and microservices using a managed serverless platform. It allows you to run multiple container revisions.

The playground is a safe and secure sandbox environment for you to explore your own ideas, follow along with Cloud Academy courses, or answer your own questions all without the need to install any software on your local machine. The extended duration of this playground provides you with ample time to play to your heart's content. The goal is to be able to experiment and learn with little start time or overhead. Feel free to experiment with creating and configuring web applications, container app, container registry, and their child resources, as well as practice setting up any part of the AZ-104-level resource stack you'd like! You'll have the permissions necessary to create and manage Container Apps, Container Registry with Standard tier, and Azure App Service with a Standard (S1) plan. Enjoy!
