Introduction/Overview

In this course, students will learn how to design and develop services that access local and remote data from various data sources. Students will also learn how to develop and deploy services to hybrid environments, including on-premises servers and Windows Azure. This course helps people prepare for exam 70-487.

Learning Outcome:

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the basic concepts of service development and data access strategies using the .NET platform.
  • Describe the Microsoft Azure cloud platform and its compute, data, and application hosting offerings.
  • Design and develop a data-centric application using Visual Studio 2017 and Entity Framework Core.
  • Design, implement, and consume HTTP services using ASP.NET Core.
  • Extend HTTP services using ASP.NET Core.
  • Host services on-premises and in Microsoft Azure.
  • Deploy services to both on-premises and cloud environments and manage the interface and policy for their services.
  • Choose a data storage solution, cache, distribute, and synchronize data.
  • Monitor, log, and troubleshoot services.
  • Describe claim-based identity concepts and standards, and implement authentication and authorization with Azure Active Directory.
  • Create scalable service applications.

Who needs the course?

Primary: .NET developers who want to learn how to develop services and deploy them to hybrid environments.
Secondary: .NET developers with Web application development experience who are exploring developing new applications or porting existing applications to Microsoft Azure.

Before attending this course, students must have:

  • Experience with C# programming, and concepts such as lambda expressions, LINQ, and anonymous types
  • Understanding the concepts of n-tier applications
  • Experience with querying and manipulating data with ADO.NET

  • Manage transactions by using the API from System. Transactions namespace; implement distributed transactions including distributed transaction on SQL Azure; specify a transaction isolation level

Implement transactions

  • Manage transactions by using the API from System. Transactions namespace; implement distributed transactions including distributed transaction on SQL Azure; specify a transaction isolation level

Create and implement a WCF Data Services service

  • Address resources; implement filtering; create a query expression; access payload formats, including JSON; use data service interceptors and service operators; version a data service; implement data services providers; host the dataservice; use actions to implement server-side behavior

Querying and Manipulating Data by Using the Entity Framework (20-25%)

Query and manipulate data by using the Entity Framework

  • Query, update, and delete data by using DbContext; build a query that uses deferred execution; implement lazy loading and eager loading; create and run compiled queries; query data by using Entity SQL; create global query filters

Query and manipulate data by using Data Provider for Entity Framework

  • Query and manipulate data by using Connection, DataReader, and Command objects from the System.Data.EntityClient namespace; perform synchronous and asynchronous operations; manage transactions (API)

Query data by using LINQ to Entities

  • Query data by using LINQ operators, including project, skip, aggregate, filter, and join; log queries; implement query boundaries

Query and manipulate data by using ADO.NET

  • Query and manipulate data by using Connection, Data Reader, and Command objects; perform synchronous and asynchronous operations; manage transactions

Create an Entity Framework data model

  • Structure a data model using Table per type, table per class, and table per hierarchy; select and implement an approach to manage a data model, including code first, model first, and database first; implement POCO objects; describe a data model by using conceptual schema definitions, storage schema definitions, and mapping languages, including CSDL, SSDL, and MSL

Implement Entity Framework with third party databases

  • Implement Entity Framework using MySQL and SQLite databases; design a strategy to manage differences between database capabilities; leverage database specific technologies, including ON DUPLICATE KEY using Entity Framework
