Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Barry Luijbregts, and welcome to my course, Building a Global App with Azure Platform as a Service. I am an independent software developer and architect with a passion for the cloud. Microsoft Azure Platform as a Service provides a great platform and many services that enable you to build highly-available performant and secure applications. In this course, we are going to build a globally-distributed application that is resilient, performant, and secure. Some of the major topics that we will cover include creating the web application with web apps, CDN, and Redis Cache, secure an application and data with Azure Active Directory, connecting data to the application using Azure SQL, and orchestrating the on-boarding process with Azure Logic apps. By the end of this course, you'll know how to design and build a global application using the power of Microsoft Azure's Platform as a Service offering. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with developing web-based applications using ASP. NET MVC. I hope that you'll join me on this journey to learn about the Azure platform with the Building a Global App with Azure Platform as a Service course here at Pluralsight.
