An Updated Cloud Patterns and Architecture Course

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

I’ve updated my Cloud Patterns and Architecture course on Pluralsight.

The overall goal of this course is to show the technologies and techniques you can use to build scalable, resilient, and highly available applications in the cloud, specifically with Azure.

Sample System Design with Azure Platform Services

In addition to walking through sample architectures, demonstrating design patterns, and adding bits of theory on topics like the CAP theorem, here are some of the lower level demos in the course:

  • Setting up Azure Traffic Manager and using Traffic Manager profiles to route traffic to a geo-distributed web application.

  • Setting up Azure Service Bus to send and receive queued messages.

  • Creating an Azure Redis Cache and using the cache with an SDK, as well as configuring the cache to operate behind the ASPNET IDistributedCache interface.

  • Provisioning a Content Delivery Network (Azure CDN) and pushing static web site content into the CDN.

  • Importing a web API into Azure API Manager using OpenAPI and the ASPNET Swashbuckle package, then configuring an API to apply a throttling policy.

  • Creating, tweaking, running, and analyzing load tests using Azure DevOps and Visual Studio load testing tools.

And more! I hope you enjoy the course!
