System requirements and support options
In this lab you will implement from scratch a classic web architecture – the web-queue-worker pattern. Using Cloud services to host your application and Azure ServiceBus for the queue, you will learn how to build and deploy the application components. You will build a simple MVC application (and learn MVC basics if you don’t know it). You will learn how to program against the ServiceBus queue. You will learn how to implement azure diagnostics to monitor your worker role. You will do all your development work in a VM you will create on Azure – so you will also learn a little about Azure Virtual Machines – complimentary capabilities to web/worker roles.
