After completing this course, students will be able to:Apply infrastructure and configuration as code principles.

  •     Deploy and manage infrastructure using Microsoft automation technologies such as ARM templates, PowerShell, and Azure CLI.
  •     Describe deployment models and services that are available with Azure.
  •     Deploy and configure a Managed Kubernetes cluster.
  •     Deploy and configure infrastructure using 3rd party tools and services with Azure, such as Chef, Puppet, Ansible, SaltStack, and Terraform.
  •     Define an infrastructure and configuration strategy and appropriate toolset for a release pipeline and application infrastructure.
  •     Implement compliance and security in your application infrastructure.
  •     Plan for the transformation with shared goals and timelines.
  •     Select a project and identify project metrics and KPIs.
  •     Create a team and agile organizational structure.
  •     Develop a project quality strategy.
  •     Plan for secure development practices and compliance rules.
  •     Migrate and consolidate artifacts.
  •     Migrate and integrate source control measures.



Students should have fundamental knowledge about Azure, version control, Agile software development, and core software development principles.Students in this course are interested in implementing application infrastructure and the management and configuration of that infrastructure, are interested in planning DevOps projects or in passing the Microsoft Azure DevOps Solutions certification exam.


Students should have fundamental knowledge about Azure, experience with virtual machines and containers, and some exposure to automation and scripting. Experience working in a software development or operations environment with either Windows or Linux would be helpful but is not essential. Students should also have knowledge of general application development and deployment processes.
