Demistify Azure!

This 1-day workshop focuses on the essential Azure services that any developer should know.

You'll learn App Service and other Azure services making sense for Web developers, giving you a strong and concrete foundation that you can build on top of. It's basically day 1 of our 2-day Learn Azure workshop compressed a little bit to include the SQL Database content.


If you're planning to attend the Modernization workshop and have no previous experience with Azure, this is the perfect way to get you up to speed quickly.


WORKSHOP OUTLINE
