DP-3015 Getting Started with Cosmos DB NoSQL Development

Skip to Scheduled Dates

Course Overview

This course teaches developers to utilize Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL API and SDK. Students will learn query execution, resource configuration, SDK operations, and design strategies for non-relational data modeling and data partitioning.

Who Should Attend

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

Course Outline

1 - Introduction to Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL

  • What is Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL
  • How does Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL work
  • When should you use Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL

2 - Try Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL

  • Explore resources
  • Review basic operations

3 - Plan Resource Requirements

  • Understand throughput
  • Evaluate throughput requirements
  • Evaluate data storage requirements
  • Time-to-live (TTL)
  • Plan for data retention with time-to-live (TTL)

4 - Configure Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL database and containers

  • Serverless
  • Compare serverless vs. provisioned throughput
  • Autoscale throughput
  • Compare autoscale vs. standard (manual) throughput
  • Migrate between standard (manual) and autoscale throughput

5 - Use the Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL SDK

  • Understand the SDK
  • Import from package manager
  • Connect to an online account
  • Implement client singleton
  • Configure connectivity mode

6 - Configure the Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL SDK

  • Enable offline development
  • Handle connection errors
  • Implement threading and parallelism
  • Configure logging

7 - Implement Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL point operations

  • Understand point operations
  • Create documents
  • Read a document
  • Update documents
  • Configure time-to-live (TTL) value for a specific document
  • Delete documents

8 - Query the Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL

  • Understand SQL query language
  • Create queries with SQL
  • Project query results
  • Implement type-checking in queries
  • Use built-in functions
  • Execute queries in the SDK

9 - Author complex queries with the Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL

  • Create cross-product queries
  • Implement correlated subqueries
  • Implement variables in queries
  • Paginate query results

10 - Implement a non-relational data model

  • What's the difference between NoSQL and relational databases?
  • Identify access patterns for your app
  • When to embed or reference data
  • Choose a partition key
  • Model small lookup entities

11 - Design a data partitioning strategy

  • Denormalize data in your model
  • Manage referential integrity by using change feed
  • Combine multiple entities in the same container
  • Denormalize aggregates in the same container
  • Finalize the data model
