LAUNCH: Build serverless, full stack applications in Azure
Published May 25 2021 10:00 AM 2,348 Views

Whether you’re new or seasoned to cloud, development, and SQL, building and architecting applications in the cloud has become a required skill for many roles. Today, we’re excited to announce a new learning path to help developers of all skill levels learn how to create applications quickly and effectively with Azure. The new learning path is Build serverless, full stack applications in Azure.



In this learning path, you’ll learn how to create, build, and deploy modern full stack applications in Azure leveraging the language of your choice (Python, Node.js, or .NET) and with a Vue.js frontend. Topics covered include modern database capabilities, CI/CD and DevOps, backend API development, REST, and more. Using a real-world scenario of trying to catch the bus, you will learn how to build a solution that integrates Azure SQL Database, Azure Functions, Azure Static Web Apps, Logic Apps, Visual Studio Code and GitHub Actions.



This learning path is a great place for faculty to pull content for their application development classes. We’ve chatted with several schools and universities and confirmed that something like this would be useful for students and fit in their curriculum. Since the learning path was developed in three languages, it’s also useful for students and faculty trying to learn other languages. We’ve translated the code directly and structured it using development best practices, so hopefully it is useful.


In addition to this new learning path which allows you to get hands on for FREE in Microsoft Learn’s Azure sandbox, Davide Mauri and myself, who built the learning path, will be presenting one of the modules as part of Microsoft Build Learn Live. Be sure to register and attend! Of course, if you’re reading this after the live session, the recording will also be available through the Microsoft Build website.


If you aren’t interested in completing all of the modules, but want to dive into a specific topic, the modules are standalone, and you can learn at your own pace. Here are the modules:

  1. Architect modern applications using Azure SQL Database
  2. Deploy serverless APIs with Azure Functions, Logic Apps, and Azure SQL Database
  3. Build full stack applications with Azure Static Web Apps and Azure SQL Database
  4. Architect full-stack applications and automate deployments with GitHub
