Azure Development

After completing the Azure Development path you’ll have the core hands-on knowledge and skills needed to to build, test, deploy and manage applications on Azure. You’ll start by learning the basics of how Azure works, what its foundational services are and how they fit together. From there you’ll get your python and javascript programming up to scratch and then build the applied knowledge in containers, serverless, storage and security that you need to sit your Developer Associate certification. To take your development skills to the next level you’ll go deeper with Azure databases, DevOps on Azure and app development.Whether you're a total beginner or looking to take your Azure Development skills to the next level, these flexible paths let you skip what you know and start at the appropriate lesson. The paths also have a major focus on practical learning using hands-on labs, like all of ACG's learning.

Not sure where to start? We’ll guide you through the exact skills you need to gain to progress from novice to guru across a variety of cloud specialties.

These paths are flexible, so you can hop in where you’re comfortable and start at the appropriate level, whether you’re a total novice or looking to take your skills to the next level. And as with all ACG learning, there’s a major focus on gaining practical experience through Hands-on Labs.
