The Azure SuperPowers Tour

Learn to build Microsoft Azure cloud apps with real-world best practices from start to finish

This one-day workshop brings developers up-to-speed on the new features and benefits of using Microsoft Azure to build awesome cloud-based applications.

At SSW we have already gone through the hard work of implementing these new and exciting technologies in our projects for everything from small start-ups to enterprises and government agencies. View our Azure consulting page.

Come watch our best Azure 2 devs build an Azure application from scratch and take it all the way to an enterprise application using all the best tools and practices we use.

Don't waste weeks learning Azure, the Angular CLI, RxJS, TypeScript, ngrx, NPM, WebPack, end to end testing and unit testing. Get your head around all the core concepts and get jump started in just one day.


Part 1: Understanding Azure

In Part 1 we give you an overview of the pieces you are most likely to need to build enterprise web applications so that you get an idea of what you need to know to be able to build Azure applications.

  • Azure in 20 minutes - the Big Picture

  • Machines in the cloud:
    Virtual Machines, VM Scale Sets, Managed Disks and Azure Container Services

  • App Services Overview:
    Web Apps, Mobile Apps, API Apps and Logic Apps

  • Data and Storage overview: SQL Database, DocumentDB and Azure Storage

Part 2: Azure HotShots - The Azure bits you didn’t know you needed to know

Azure is big. Really big. There are more than 60 different products that make up Azure and knowing which to invest time in is a serious challenge. This section gives you a very brief introduction to the parts of Azure you may have missed, so that when the time comes - you know about the tools at your disposal.

  • App Services - Web Apps, Mobile Apps, API Apps and Logic Apps

  • Azure Functions

  • Data and Storage: SQL Database, DocumentDB and Azure Storage, SQL Data Warehouse, Data Factory

  • Azure Automation and Azure Resource Manager

  • API Management

  • Essential networking: Azure Traffic Manager and DNS

  • Azure Bot Service

  • Azure Backup & Site Recovery

  • Azure Machine Learning & Cognitive Services

  • Redis Cache & Azure Search

  • Azure Active Directory, AD B2C & Multi-Factor Authentication

  • Azure Key Vault & Azure Security Center

  • Azure Scheduler & Azure Batch

  • Azure Event Hubs & Notification Hubs

  • Azure Service Bus

  • Azure Service Fabric

  • Azure Media Services

  • Application Insights

  • Azure Advisor

  • Azure CDN

  • Machine Learning and Cognitive Services

Part 3: Azure Service Bus Fundamentals

The Azure Service Bus is a highly-reliable cloud messaging service between applications and services, even when one or more is offline. When building distributed applications the service bus makes it easy for each of your components to communicate.

In this section we will look at how to build an application composed of several small services and to communicate between those services.

In this section we will cover:

  • An overview of the Azure Service Bus

  • Queues, Topics and Relays and when each makes sense

  • Why use a Service Bus

Part 4: Serverless and a better life without servers

Azure Functions is a solution for easily running small pieces of code, or "functions," in the cloud. You can write just the code you need for the problem at hand, without worrying about a whole application or the infrastructure to run it. Azure Functions lets you develop serverless applications on Microsoft Azure.

In this section we will cover:

  • What is Serverless ?

  • An intro to Azure Functions

  • The difference between Serverless offerings:
    Azure Functions vs AWS Lambda vs Google Cloud Functions

Part 5: Building a cloud-based microservices API

The last section of the day is about putting it all together. In this section we will walk through how we build scalable, maintainable enterprise applications using Microsoft Azure.

  • Message based architectures

  • Command Query Response Segregation

  • Real-world microservices using Microsoft Azure
