Build serverless, full stack applications in Azure

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. We recently announced 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.





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, presented this content as part of Microsoft Build in May, and you can access the recording here.


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
