Book Review – Packt Publishing | Mastering Cloud Development using Microsoft Azure

Hi everyone,

today I want to give you an intro to another book I had the chance to review. 🙂

A few month ago I had the chance to review another book from packt. This time Mastering Cloud Development using Microsoft Azure written by Roberto Freato and Marco Parenzan. Both are great Azure MVPs and I had a great time to review their book.

Book Description

Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform that supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.

This book starts by helping you set up a professional development environments in the cloud and integrating them with your local environment to achieve improved efficiency. You will move on to create front-end and back-end services, and then build cross-platform applications using Azure. Next you’ll get to grips with advanced techniques used to analyze usage data and automate billing operations. Following on from that, you will gain knowledge of how you can extend your on-premise solution to the cloud and move data in a pipeline.
