Create Serverless Applications


In this course, you will learn how Azure Functions enable the creation of event-driven, compute-on-demand systems that can be triggered by various external events. You will earn how to leverage functions to execute server-side logic and build serverless architectures.

This course will help you prepare for the Microsoft Certified: Azure Developer Associate certification. This course is part of a Specialization intended for developers who want to demonstrate their expertise in all phases of cloud development from requirements, definition, and design; to development, deployment, and maintenance; to performance tuning and monitoring. It is ideal for anyone interested in preparing for the AZ-204: Developing Solutions for Microsoft Azure exam.
This is the first course in a program of 8 courses to help prepare you to take the exam. Each course teaches you the concepts and skills that are measured by the exam.
By the end of this Professional Certificate program, you will be ready to take and sign-up for the Exam AZ-204: Developing Solutions for Microsoft Azure.

What you will learn

Automate Business Processes with Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure provides several different ways to host and execute code or workflows without using Virtual Machines (VMs) including Azure Functions, Microsoft Power Automate, Azure Logic Apps, and Azure WebJobs. In this module, you will learn about these technologies and how to choose the right one for a given scenario. You will also see how Azure Functions allow developers to host business logic that can be executed without managing or provisioning infrastructure.

Execute an Azure Function with triggers

A trigger is responsible for executing an Azure function and there are dozens of triggers to choose from. This module will show you some of the most common types of triggers and how to configure them to execute your logic.

Chain Azure Functions together using input and output bindings

Azure Functions makes it easy for your function code to integrate with data and services. In this module, you will learn to use bindings to declare the data sources to read and write, and let Azure Functions take care of the rest.

Modernize workflow with Azure Functions

In this module, you will learn how to orchestrate a long-running workflow as a set of activities using Durable Functions. You will use the Azure Functions Core Tools to create and run functions on a development computer and publish them to Azure. You will learn how to create, test, and deploy Azure Functions using Visual studio and how to manage Azure Function code.
