This intensive two day course provides the knowledge and skills required to leverage the SOA, communication and integration capabilities provided by Microsoft Azure Service Bus. The course is targeted at experienced .NET developers who wish to create distributed applications using cloud-based capabilities.
The course will cover the use of the Azure Service Bus to provide connectivity to on-premise and cloud-based services. The use of relayed messaging for request-response operations and brokered messaging for asynchronous one-way messaging will be explored and best practices for reliable secure messaging explained. The use of Event Hubs for processing high-volume telemetry streams will also be covered.
Advanced features like publish-subscribe messaging, routing, message sessions and correlation will be covered in detail as well as procedures for handling failed and expired messages. The securing of access to the service bus access will be covered.
A number of challenging and engaging hands-on labs will be used to reinforce the topics covered and provide ands-on experience of the technologies.
As the Windows Azure Service Bus is a rapidly evolving technology the course content can be subject to change.
