Five Azure Services Every Developer Should Know


Getting started with Azure can be daunting for new developers. With dozens of various platforms, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with choices! Where should I host my applications? Where should I store my data? How do I manage my applications? Despite the numerous amounts of specialized choices available on Azure, there are core platforms that meet the majority of the requirements for the majority of use cases. In this talk, you’ll be introduced to these platforms, their use cases, and some best practices for working with them. Along the way, we’ll implement and deploy a solution to Azure that takes advantage of them.
