Since its inception about 10 years ago, Microsoft has added a tremendous amount of services to Azure and it’s really hard to keep track of everything in Azure. Often, developers are asked to “move things to the cloud”… and then what? Which service do you need? What is a better solution for which problem? And… where do I even start as a developer to move my applications to Azure?
This workshop is aimed at developers faced with these and other Azure-related questions. During this workshop, developers will get an overview of the services that matter for them. You will learn how to build applications with the cloud in mind. You’ll understand the most commonly used services when working with Azure. After this workshop, you’ll be much better equipped to take your code to the cloud!
