Description

This course teaches developers how to create application using the SQL API and SDK for Azure Cosmos DB. Students will learn how to write efficient queries, create indexing policies, manage and provisioned resources, and perform common operations with the SDK.

Audience

  • Software engineers tasked with authoring cloud-native solutions that leverage Azure Cosmos DB SQL API and its various SDKs. They are familiar with C#, Python, Java, or JavaScript. They also have experience writing code that interacts with a SQL or NoSQL database platform.

Objectives

  • Create and configure Azure Cosmos DB SQL API account, database, and container
  • Use the .NET SDK to manage resources and perform operations
  • Perform queries of varying complexity
  • Design a data modeling and partitioning strategy
  • Optimize queries and indexes based on characteristics of an application
  • Use the Azure Resource Manager to manage accounts and resources with CLI or JSON and Bicep templates
