Azure is a large set of services available for developing IaaS (infrastructure as a service) and PaaS (platform as a service) to do everything from running a Web site to running your entire business services including active directory in the cloud or shared between your site and the cloud. At times, it may be overwhelming to learn what the platform supports with literally thousands of features.

  • Understand the functionality Azure provides to the developer through its major services
  • How to develop for Azure's various services
  • How to deploy your solutions to the cloud, including web and services
