Overview of this book

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. In a nutshell, this book will show you how to build high-quality, end-to-end services using Microsoft Azure. By the end of this book, you will have the skillset needed to successfully set up, develop, and manage a full-stack Azure infrastructure.

In this chapter, we discussed APIs. We learned how to use the ASP.NET Web API as ServiceStack and how to document it with Swagger. We saw how Azure App Service helps manage the entire life cycle of API/web development, and we underlined the fundamental role of a API Gateway when building complex API infrastructures.

With APIM, we learned how to implement a rational process of API Management, and finally we looked at some tricks to perform efficient debugging with distributed environments.

In the next chapter, we'll learn how to deal with messaging systems in order to create distributed applications that should be scalable, resilient, and robust.
