Free book – learn azure in a month of lunches – covering Cloud, AI, devops etc

 

 

 

At the Data Science for IoT course at the University of Oxford – I have been working on a strategy implementing Artificial Intelligence holistically on the Cloud and Edge. This is a complex approach with many new concepts to learn. One of the books I have learnt from is  “learn azure in a month of lunches” by Iain Foulds. The great thing is: the whole book is free  - pdf download - learn azure in a month of lunches

 

A brief review follows:

 

The Cloud brings many aspects together and thus changes the role of the Developer who wants to build scalable, secure applications. The developer now needs to understand the functions of IT operations including the functionality of (CICD and devops – in context of Azure). Each Cloud platform implements similar concepts

 

The book is readable in chunks of 45 mins per chapter(hence the name)

The book has four sections

 

PART 1 AZURE CORE SERVICES

PART 2 HIGH AVAILABILITY AND SCALE

PART 3 SECURE BY DEFAULT

PART 4 THE COOL STUFF

 

AZURE CORE SERVICES includes an understanding of github, creating a virtual machine, managing web apps etc

 

HIGH AVAILABILITY AND SCALE includes Azure Resource Manager,  Infrastructure redundancy, oad-balancing applications etc

 

SECURE BY DEFAULT section includes Backup, recovery, replication, Encryption etc

 

And finally

THE COOL STUFF section includes Machine learning and artificial intelligence; Azure Cognitive Services, Azure Automation, Azure containers, Azure Kubernetes, Serverless computing

 

Overall, this is a very readable book. I found it useful both for my teaching and for projects. And the fact its free is even better!
