With the prevalence of cloud technologies and DevOps ways of working, the industry demands developers who can build cloud solutions and monitor them throughout their life cycle. Becoming a Microsoft-certified Azure developer can differentiate developers from the competition, but with such a plethora of information available, it can be difficult to structure learning in an effective way to obtain certification.
Through easy-to-understand explanations and exercises, this book will provide a more palatable learning experience than what you may expect from an exam preparation book. You’ll start off with a recap of some important cloud concepts, such as IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. From there, you’ll learn about each relevant solution area, with use cases. The chapters also cover different implementation methodologies, both manual and programmatic – ranging from compute resources such as App Service and serverless applications to storage, database, security, monitoring solutions, and connecting to third-party services.
By the end of this book, you'll have learned everything you need to pass the AZ-204 certification exam and have a handy, on-the-job reference guide.
