IL - Architecting Modern Apps and IoT

Course Overview

The Azure Modern Apps and IoT Architect workshop is designed to prepare the architect to design solutions with Microsoft Azure. This workshop is focused on designing solutions using Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Serverless Services in Azure to build new web, solutions as well as highly scalable and globally available applications. This workshop will also focus on architecting IoT based solutions with real-time data ingestion and processing in Azure.  Students will also experience several hands- on labs to introduce them to some of the key services available.

  • Understand how to select the appropriate storage option for a given use case with an application
  • Understand how to architect a solution that captures telemetry and is easily diagnosable for health and usability
  • Enable the student to propose a proof of concept with knowledge of which services can be used for a web, IoT, or service based solution
  • Background with developer technologies for building web, IoT, and service based applications
  • Core understanding of cloud technologies

Course Outline

MODULE 1: Architecting Applications for Azure

In this module students will learn how Azure changes application architecture. From the ability to easily add capacity and scale globally to the different mindset of working with transient resources.

MODULE 2: Azure App Services

In this module the student will learn the core capabilities and use cases of Azure App Services. This module will focus on capabilities from Web, Mobile, Logic, and API apps on Azure.

MODULE 3: Choosing the Right Storage

In this module the student will learn about the various storage options from SQL Database to NoSQL and Document based database technologies. This module is focused on choosing the right tool for the right job and considering the decision points architects will make when designing storage for their apps.

MODULE 4: Architecting Global Solutions

In this module the student will learn how to use technologies like Traffic Manager and platform replication strategies to architect solutions for global scale and availability.

MODULE 5: Building Secure Solutions

In this module the student will learn techniques for securing data in their applications and storage design. This session will focus on best practices for implementing encryption for data in transit and at rest as well as looking at techniques for locking down a solution at the network layer.

MODULE 6: Monitoring and Diagnostics

In this module the student will learn how to use Azure Diagnostics and Application insights to capture valuable telemetry to the health of their application. This telemetry is useful for optimizing an application, identifying performance bottlenecks and even diagnosing problems such as crashes and hangs.

MODULE 7: Architecting Scalable Services

In this module, students will learn about architecting highly scalable micro-services architectures using Azure Service Fabric. This session will focus on design principles and patterns as well as capabilities of apps built on Service Fabric.

MODULE 8: Architecting IoT Solutions

In this module, students will learn the basics of IoT terminology and where the Microsoft Azure services fit. This module introduces the Lambda Architecture, which is used as a reference architecture for building an analytics data pipeline that processes telemetry data from devices and makes it available to alerting, management and reporting applications. It also introduces the two messaging flows of any IoT solution: device-to-cloud and cloud-to-device. Finally, the key services IoT Hub and IoT Suite are introduced.

MODULE 9: Real-Time Data Ingestion in Azure

In this module, students will learn about the protocols for real-time ingest including HTTP, AMQP and MQTT and the storage of data received using queue based services provided by IoT Hub and Event Hubs.

Learning Format:

  • 40% - Lecture
  • 30% - hands-on labs
  • 30% - whiteboard design
