How to become an Azure developer?

Azure is a cloud computing platform that enables you to access and manage cloud services and other resources provided by Microsoft. These resources and services include storing and transforming the data as per your requirements. Azure offers more than 200 services divided into 18 categories: networking, IoT, computing, storage, migration, analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, containers, developer tools, management tools, databases, security, DevOps, web services, and more.

Azure developers work with the Azure platform to create and deploy apps and services. As an Azure developer, you’ll be responsible for designing, building, implementing, and supporting solutions ranging from technical infrastructure to apps. If you wish to become an Azure developer, you should have past development experience and familiarity with other Microsoft products such as Powershell, Office 365, and Dynamics 365, etc. You'll need to keep up with the newest technological and methodology breakthroughs, as well as understand how to transform them into real, dependable solutions that solve business challenges.

What is the scope of Azure development?

Azure is Microsoft’s fastest and largest growing business and most significant for companies whose business strategy is “Mobile First, Cloud First.” As per the strength of Microsoft in the industry, it is easy to conclude that Azure is expected to grow continuously in the most relevant areas of technology. Because most of the services and systems that can analyze and process that information run in the cloud, the next wave of technology will be about data. Because there will be many connected devices and sensors, the data will need to be stored, and the majority of it will be stored in the cloud. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, advanced Analytics, Business Intelligence services, Big Data structures are all provided by the platforms like Azure which are now considered as engines of the information age.

The future of Azure is bright, and it is already more than just a cloud. It is now a critical infrastructure for the connected world and will be a major enabler of the next wave of technology, i.e., data and artificial intelligence.

What are the roles and responsibilities of an Azure developer?

To implement solutions, Azure developers collaborate with cloud solution architects, cloud DBAs, cloud administrators, and clients. Participating in all aspects of cloud development, from requirements, definition, and design to development, deployment, maintenance, and performance tuning and monitoring, is part of this role.

It is recommended that you upskill yourself in the direction where the market shows high employment potential for the skill sets required. So is the demand for Azure developers today. In a few years, the majority of the businesses will move their workload to the cloud, making it a significant career option to consider. The job includes various responsibilities like developing, deploying the application on Azure, maintaining and testing applications. The developer contributes to all the development phases and works alongside cloud architects, cloud administrators, and clients.

The primary roles and responsibilities of an Azure developer includes –

  • Work with Microsoft products like PowerShell, Office 365, etc., as these apps are integrated with Azure.
  • Should be involved in app development with familiarity in languages like SQL, JavaScript, and HTML.
  • Create scripts that will automate the deployment of resource stacks and related customizations.
  • To address the firm's technological and resiliency needs using native Azure services.
  • Drive Azure monitoring approach, identity and access management, and configuration management
  • Lead the network connectivity to the Azure design process.

How to become an Azure developer?

If you want to become an Azure developer, specific skills and areas of knowledge are to be locked down. There are three important fundamental skills for a great start that serve as a strong launching point and a good foundation. First, as you will be working with a Microsoft product, you should possess knowledge of MS products like Office 365 and PowerShell. Second, you need to have some experience in languages like SQL server, JavaScript, and HTML5. Third, familiarity with cloud computing is a must, and if not with Azure, then an experience with Google Cloud or AWS will also help.
Various Azure developer certifications help you get an Azure developer job faster. The certification distinguishes your profile from the crowd and shows that you have the necessary skills and potential to excel in the field. Microsoft also provides certifications for those who want to be an Azure developer. Many companies offer in-house upskilling programs so that the developers can stay updated with the latest trends and emerging technologies. If the companies don’t provide such in-house training, you can always go for certifications. These certifications test your ability for Azure cloud model development, Azure storage development, creating and implementing security features for cloud solutions, building cloud integration solutions, Azure IaaS and PaaS development, development of cognitive services, IoT services, and Azure bot.
Let’s take a look at the skills you will need to master to be successful at your Azure developer job.

Skills required to become a Azure developer

When developing applications for the cloud, you need various skills and a different mindset than when developing applications for on-premises environments. This is because the cloud provides resiliency, global scalability, and features and services not available on-premises. To remain intact in this new world, you need to level up your existing skills and acquire the latest ones. Below mentioned are some of the essential skills you need while developing an application on Microsoft Azure.

1. Scaling application

With the cloud, it is much easier to scale your application in, out, up, and down. You can quickly move to a more powerful server and increase the number of application instances and vice versa. That depends on the Azure developer; they need to ensure that when a new instance for an app is created, it keeps running. Azure can help with challenges like scaling globally. It has a service called Azure Traffic Manager that directs the users to the most performing application instance based on their location.

2. Scaling data

When you scale applications, you also need to scale your data. This is difficult than scaling application as you also need to think about –

  • Where is it allowed for the data to be stored?
  • How can you maximize performance and minimize latency and get the data close to the users?
  • How will you deal with transactional consistency?
    These are some complex challenges, and the solution depends on your situation, like who the users are, where they are situated, the company rules and regulations, what type of data you store, etc. Azure provides help with Azure Cosmos DB service, enabling you to replicate data to other regions and select the level of consistency you need.

3. Monitoring pipeline

In the cloud, many different services are running your system. The distributed and loosely connected nature of the cloud makes it difficult to get an overview of what is running and get an understanding of your system. You have to create a pipeline to monitor the services and, if needed, diagnose them. You can use the Azure Monitor service to get an overview of how things are doing. It is up to the Azure developer to implement them on all the applications that need to be monitored.

4. Script your environments

It is crucial to script your environments in the cloud so that you can have their infrastructure as code. The benefit of having a script that can create and update the complete infrastructure is that you can break down everything and build it back again quickly when needed. This enables you to pay only for the infrastructure when you are using it. You can use the Azure Resource Manager templates to create code from infrastructure and deploy it using tools like Visual Studio Team Services or Azure Automation.

5. Resiliency

The cloud is built for resiliency, and you need to make sure that the application keeps running even when the server dies. To provide this resiliency, the cloud uses some mechanisms that you need to consider in your applications.
