Microservice Development on Azure: Node.js [Video]

More Information
  • Learn how to build a sample Node.js application for Azure Cloud
  • Build an application using Node.js and understand what it takes to build cloud-native apps
  • Learn about different Azure architectural building blocks you can use to run Node.js apps on Azure
  • Use Azure architectural building blocks and integrate CI/CD DevOps pipeline concepts
  • Understand Azure services such as Azure Web Apps, Azure Container Services, and Cosmos DB and highlight specifics used by Node.js applications
  • Architect and deploy services such as zooming for high-availability on the Azure platform
  • Extend Azure application benefits by integrating with Azure Container Services and Azure Kubernetes Services
  • Monitor and troubleshoot your application using Azure Application Insights

This course shows you step-by-step how to use Azure Building Blocks to deploy your Node.js microservice-based apps to the cloud.

You will start with what cloud-native applications are and their benefits. You will also learn about the crucial reasons for developing a Node.js app and deploying it on Azure. Then you will understand different Azure services, highlight Azure building blocks used by Node.js apps, and deploy your Node.js applications on the Azure Cloud platform. Finally, you will monitor and troubleshoot your Node.js applications with Azure App Insights.

By the end of the course, you will have mastered building an application in Node.js that's based on microservices, deploying it on the Azure Cloud platform, and monitoring and troubleshooting it with Azure App Insights.
