At course completion
After completing this course, students will be able to:
Describe the basic concepts of service development and data access strategies using the .NET platform.
Describe the Microsoft Azure cloud platform and its compute, data, and application hosting offerings.
Design and develop a data-centric application using Visual Studio 2017 and Entity Framework Core. Design, implement, and consume HTTP services using ASP.NET Core.
Extend HTTP services using ASP.NET Core.
Host services on-premises and in Microsoft Azure.
Deploy services to both on-premises and cloud environments and manage the interface and policy for their services.
Choose a data storage solution, cache, distribute, and synchronize data.
Monitor, log, and troubleshoot services.
Describe claim-based identity concepts and standards, and implement authentication and authorization with Azure Active Directory.
Create scalable service applications.
