Serverless Architecture: 1-Day Virtual Workshop

Dynamics Edge

In this 1-day, instructor-led workshop, you will setup and configure a serverless architecture within Azure using Azure Functions, Logic Apps, Event Grid, Cosmos DB, and Azure Storage.

This 1-day, instructor-led workshop focuses on removing server management from the equation, breaking down the solution into smaller components that are individually scalable, and allowing the customer to only pay for what they use.

What You’ll Learn

  • Use functions to independently scale and break down business logic into discrete components
  • Use computer vision algorithms
  • Provision and use Cosmos DB
  • Create a Logic App to export processed data and conditionally send alerts
  • Use App Insights to monitor a serverless topology
  • Implement a Continuous Deployment process


  • Workshop content presumes 300-level of architectural expertise of infrastructure and solutions design.
  • We suggest students take a Microsoft Azure Essentials course prior to attending this workshop.
