Azure Academy Part 2 – Data Storage, Messaging Services and IoT

The emergence of Cloud Computing has created a paradigm-shift in software development. It enables new projects to rapidly evolve from concept to production, and existing systems to be enhanced and extended into hybrid applications. The Microsoft Azure platform provides a broad range of services that are constantly evolving, and are rapidly becoming a vital part of today’s development and operations.

Do you possess the skills and knowledge to leverage these new technologies and services?

The Azure Academy is an intensive training program created by experts who are experienced in delivering solutions on the Azure platform. The training sessions are comprised of lectures, discussions, hands-on labs and group activities. As an attendee you will be taught the theory of designing and building cloud-based applications and then reinforce that knowledge with open ended challenge style hands-on labs. Azure experts and community leaders Alan Smith, Robert Folkesson, Jakob Ehn and Peter Örneholm will provide in-depth coverage of the services and technologies that they leverage on a daily basis to deliver customer solutions.

On completion of the course, you will not only understand the theory but be able to translate it into delivering effective, scalable and reliable cloud-based applications.

The training will consist of three two-day courses. You can attend all three courses for a discounted price, or choose just one or two courses.

Other Azure Academy courses:
