About this Course

In this course students will gain the knowledge and skills needed to ensure applications hosted in Azure are operating efficiently and as intended. Students will learn how Azure Monitor operates and how to use tools like Log Analytics and Application Insights to better understand what is happening in their application. Students will also learn how to implement autoscale, instrument their solutions to support monitoring and logging, and use Azure Cache and CDN options to enhance the end-user experience.

You will learn how identity is managed and utilized in Azure solutions by using the Microsoft identity platform and about access control (claims-based authorization and role-based access control) and how to implement secure data solutions.



Audience


Students in this course are interested in Azure development or in passing the Microsoft Azure Developer Associate certification exam.

Software Assurance Vouchers


Yes - 3 days

Prerequisites

Before attending this course:

  • Students should have 1-2 years experience as a developer. This course assumes students know how to code and have a fundamental knowledge of Azure.
  • It is recommended that students have some experience with PowerShell or Azure CLI, working in the Azure portal, and with at least one Azure-supported programming language. Most of the examples in this course are presented in C\# .NET.

Course Outline


Module 1: Implement authentication

Microsoft identity platform is an evolution of the Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) identity service and developer platform. It allows developers to build applications that sign in all Microsoft identities, get tokens to call Microsoft Graph, other Microsoft APIs, or APIs that developers have built.

Lessons

  • Microsoft identity platform
  • Implement OAuth2 authentication
  • Implement managed identities for Azure resources
  • Implement authentication by using certificates, forms-based authentication, or tokens
  • Implement multi-factor authentication

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand the architecture of the Microsoft identity platform
  • Be able to implement OAuth2 authentication in their solutions
  • Be able to use Azure Key Vault to store and retrieve authentication information

Module 2: Implement access control

This module covers claims-based and role-based access control.

Lessons

  • Claims-based authorization
  • Role-based access control (RBAC) authorization

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Learn how to use claims-based authorization in their development solutions
  • How to manage access to resources using RBAC through the REST API

Module 3: Implement secure data solutions

This module covers securing data at rest and during transmission.

Lessons

  • Encryption options
  • End-to-end encryption
  • Implement Azure confidential computing
  • Manage cryptographic keys in Azure Key Vault

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand encryption options
  • Learn how to encrypt data with Transparent Data Encryption
  • Manage and utilize encryption keys by using the Azure key Vault

Module 4: Introduction to Azure Monitor

Azure Monitor is the central service that includes all of tools you need to monitor and optimize your solution.

Lessons

  • Overview of Azure Monitor

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand how Azure Monitor works
  • Know where and how Azure Monitor collects data

Module 5: Develop code to support scalability of apps and services

This module covers how applications scale and how to handle some troubleshooting.

Lessons

  • Implement autoscale
  • Implement code that addresses singleton application instances
  • Implement code that handles transient faults

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand autoscale patterns and best practices for scaling their solutions
  • How to use the Azure CLI to communicate with a specific copy of a resource
  • How to handle transient faults in your solution

Module 6: Instrument solutions to support monitoring and logging

This module covers adding code to your app to send the data to Azure Monitor.

Lessons

  • Configure instrumentation in an app or server by using Application Insights
  • Analyze and troubleshoot solutions by using Azure Monitor

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Know how to add default code to web pages, console apps, and Windows desktop apps to support telemetry
  • Know how to use dashboards and other tools to monitor and troubleshoot their app

Module 7: Integrate caching and content delivery within solutions

This module shows students how to leverage Azure Cache for Redis and Azure CDNs to deliver assets to users more quickly.

Lessons

  • Azure Cache for Redis
  • Develop for storage on CDNs

After completing this module, students will be able to:
