Road to Azure Integration Hero
Written by Integration.team
Working in IT is great, but working in Integration is even better! Are you interested in pursuing a career in the wonderful world of Integration technologies? But you’re not sure where to start? Well, then you’ve come to the right place! The ‘Road to Azure Integration Hero’ program is specially designed to kick-start your career.
What to expect
The Road to Azure Integration Hero is built up in 4 sections.
1. Introduction to Azure and Azure Integration Services.
We’ll get you acquainted with the Azure Fundamentals concepts and a deep dive into the Azure Integration Services such as Azure Logic Apps, Functions, and API Management.
You will learn how to implement message or event-based integrations using services such as Azure Service Bus & Event Hubs. After this first section, you’ll be able to perform automated deployments in multi-environment architectures.
2. Biztalk Server
Never heard of Biztalk before? We’ve got your back! We will teach you the basics about the BizTalk Server runtime, messaging adapters, message routing & complex integration orchestrations.
3. Common Integration Design Patterns and message handling
Because you’re probably new to Integration, we will teach you the most important integration design patterns, relevant for both BizTalk Server & Azure Integration Services. Using message transformation languages such as XSLT & Liquid, you will learn how to perform message transformations and how to apply them as part of an integration solution.
4. A real-life use case.
Put your knowledge to the test in a use case and present your findings to the team. Don’t worry, we’re still here to help you out if you come across something you haven’t seen before in the course.
Do you have what it takes?
Did you just get your IT degree or do you already have your first working experience in IT? Chances are high that you’ve never worked with Biztalk & Azure Integration Services before. Let’s make you an expert in these technologies to start your career at Integration.team. Here’s a little checklist to see if you’re applicable to starting the Road to Azure Integration Hero!
If your answer is ‘yes’ to all these questions, you’ll have to read on!

Through the eyes of our team member!
“Hi, I’m Tarik, a Junior Integration Engineer at Integration.team.
I joined Integration.team right after I got my degree in IT. I still remember that during my study we never talked about Biztalk or Azure. So when one of my friends told me about his job at Integration.team, I was intrigued. I did my research and even experimented a bit with Azure, and I was really into it! That’s why I decided to go chat with Integration.team myself. They liked my enthusiasm and offered me to start the training!
The world of IT is a never-ending learning process. So I still learn something new almost every day. The Road to Azure Integration Hero was the best kind of kick-off to a new job I could imagine, definitely seen the fact that I had never heard of Azure and Biztalk before.
So if you’re looking for a job in Integration but don’t have any experience in it yet, this is your chance to get a head-start!
See you soon?”– Tarik
