Two New Azure Courses

Webucator has two new Azure courses:

  2. Professional Azure SQL Database Administration

These courses provide a balance of theory and hand-on applications that are focused on practical takeaways to emulate different scenarios you might come across while working with Azure SQL Database and to end with you getting the most out of the features offered by Azure SQL Database (the cloud version of SQL Server).

Beginning Serverless Architectures with Azure is a 1-day course intended for back-end developers and cloud engineers with some Azure experience.

Professional Azure SQL Database Administration is a 3-day course for database administrators, database developers, or application developers interested in developing new or migrating existing applications with Azure SQL Database.


New Spring and JPA2, and Spring and Hibernate Courses

Webucator has two new courses from Learning Patterns:

  1. Introduction to Spring and JPA2 (changed from previous name – Fast Track to Spring and JPA2)
  2. Introduction to Spring and Hibernate

Both courses are for developers with good working knowledge of Java who also need to use Spring and Hibernate.

The Spring and Hibernate course is only for clients using Hibernate’s proprietary XML mapping files. Those using the JPA API (e.g., @Entity) should take the Introduction to Spring and JPA course.

According to course author Yaakov Weintraub of Learning Patterns, “Spring and Hibernate/JPA are different technologies. However, Spring easily integrates with both Hibernate and JPA. This allows Hibernate and JPA-based repositories to use all of the other capabilities that Spring provides, especially dependency injection and TX management.”
