Learning Objectives

This course teaches participants the following skills:

  • Use best practices for application development.
  • Choose the appropriate data storage option for application data.
  • Implement federated identity management.
  • Develop loosely coupled application components or microservices.
  • Integrate application components and data sources.
  • Debug, trace, and monitor applications.
