Cloud-Native Learning Resources | .NET Developers
Users demand responsiveness, the latest features, and zero downtime from their applications. Furthermore, businesses are rapidly adopting the cloud’s power to meet user demand and increase the scalability and availability of applications. However, to fully optimise the way applications aware built, but also change development practices in the organisation to adopt this cloud-native architectural style.
Moreover, the .NET team at Microsoft put together a collection of free cloud-native learning resources to help you speed up your cloud-native application development journey. So whether modernising your application or creating something new, we have guidance to assist your decision-making. Furthermore, these cloud-native learning resources are up-to-date and include the latest and greatest cloud-ready features in the .NET platform.
Getting Started On Cloud-Native .NET Apps
Furthermore, if you are a beginner, start building a simple microservice endpoint using ASP.NET Web API and Docker, and deploy them to Azure Kubernetes Services(AKS).
- .NET Tutorial – Hello World Microservice covers step-by-step instructions for installing .NET and building your first microservice using Docker.
- .NET Tutorial – Deploy a microservice to Azure covers step-by-step instructions for deploying a .NET microservice to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
- .NET and Docker 101 Videos will help you get started on .NET, Docker and the tooling support in Visual Studio.
Hands-on Microsoft Learn Modules
Microsoft has a free online training platform called Microsoft Learn. Additionally, you can learn more skills with fun, guided, hands-on, interactive content specific to your roles & goals. We have built a series of modules to help you learn to build .NET microservices and cloud-native technologies like Docker, Container Registry, Kubernetes, Helm, and so much more. Furthermore, a browser is the only set-up you need on your computer to execute this model. All the magic is done behind the scenes using the Azure CLI, so you can focus on learning and leave the infrastructure headaches to the scripts.
