Azure Skills Navigator for Developers

We are excited to introduce the new Azure Skills Navigator, our very own guide to help developers get started on Azure.

Our guide provides an overview of key concepts across Java, .NET, Node.js, and Python, crucial topics to establishing a strong foundation on Microsoft Azure. The learning journey draws on a wide array of Microsoft resources – virtual trainings, learning courses, self-paced modules, videos, documentations, certifications, and more – that allow you to learn at your own time. Our Azure Skills Navigator guide ensures that you have a solid foundation as you begin to explore Azure.

How to Choose the Right Azure Services for Your Applications—It’s Not A or B E-book Series

As you move to the cloud, an important decision you’ll make is which Azure service to use to host your applications. People often see this as an A or B choice. For example, you might ask, “Should we use Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) or Azure App Service to host all our applications?” 

This A or B mindset comes from traditional, on-premises practices, in which building and deploying an application platform required big upfront investments and long lead times. With Azure, you provision and deprovision resources as needed, so you don’t have to make a single choice between A or B. It’s easy and more cost-effective to shift to a modular, A+B approach. You choose the right tool for each job, without being limited to one service to host all your applications.

Read the e-book How to Choose the Right Azure Services for Your Applications—It’s Not A or B to learn how to:

  • Apply the principles of an A+B mindset to select the best Azure service to meet each of your application needs.
  • Take a modular approach to migrating an on-premises application to Azure.
  • Modernize your applications more quickly and smoothly, and at scale.

Resilience in Azure whitepaper

Azure is a rapidly growing cloud computing platform that provides an ever-expanding suite of cloud services. These include analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web services. Azure integrates tools, templates, and managed services that work together to help make it easier to build and manage enterprise, mobile, web, and Internet of Things (IoT) apps faster, using the tools, applications, and frameworks that customers choose.

Azure is built on trust. The Azure approach to trust is based on the five foundational principles - Security, Compliance, Privacy, Resilience and Intellectual Property (IP) protection. A well-designed Azure application should focus on the five pillars of software quality.
