This learning path is designed to help you prepare for the AZ-204 Developing Solutions for Microsoft Azure exam. Even if you don't plan to take the exam, these courses will help you gain a solid understanding of developing applications on Azure. Candidates who pass the AZ-204 exam will earn the Microsoft Certified Azure Developer Associate certification. 

The AZ-204 exam tests your knowledge of five subject areas. Here’s how we’ll cover them in this learning path. We’ll start with developing compute solutions, including Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, and Function-as-a-Service. Next, we’ll get into developing for Azure storage. This includes blob storage, which is for storing unstructured data, and Cosmos DB, which is a NoSQL datastore. Then, you’ll learn how to implement security, including authentication, authorization, and managed identities. After that, you’ll learn how to monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize your solutions. Finally, we’ll cover how to connect to and consume Azure services and third-party services.
