Learn Azure – Resources plus Certification aka.ms/Azure/Learn


Hi All.  This has been something I've wanted to do for a long time i.e. put all of the learning resources on one page for learning Azure and Certification. This is also a placeholder to save my Ignite 2017 Presentation for Azure Architecture 70-534 session.  I will post the slides and recording link once available. If you want more generic Azure learning besides "Certification Prep" just skip below a little 🙂

Certification Preparation

To learn about all of the latest Azure related certifications go to aka.ms/AzureCertifications

Azure Architecture 70-534

Azure Infrastructure 70-533

  • You MUST know the exam objectives first! aka.ms/70-533
  • MS Ignite 2017 Orlando
    • Slides will be posted right after I get these from the other presenters
    • The video is now posted at aka.ms/YouTube/70-533
    • Once the recordings are moved to Channel 9, I'll post the links here.
  • Watch the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) recordings delivered earlier in 2017 at http://aka.ms/MVA/70-533
  • Also use MS Ignite 2016, but ignore anything that says "ASM" or "Cloud Services"

Azure Development 70-532

  • You MUST know the exam objectives first! aka.ms/70-532
  • MS Ignite 2017 Orlando
    • Slides will be posted right after I get these from the other presenters
    • The video is now posted at aka.ms/YouTube/70-532
    • Once the recordings are moved to Channel 9, I'll post the links here.
  • Watch the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) recordings delivered earlier in 2017 at http://aka.ms/MVA/70-532

Azure & Azure Stack Learning Resources

All of my quick Shortcuts start with aka.ms/Azure/... or  aka.ms/AzureStack/... 

For the Azure shortcuts page, go to aka.ms/Azure/Shortcuts. Want to read more about what Azure Stack is? Goto aka.ms/AzureStack for the high level overviews or aka.ms/AzureStack/Hybrid for the complete whitepaper.  One of my favorite finds for learning is on Channel 9 called the Azure Stack Channel = aka.ms/AzureStack/Channel. At the last MS Ignite 2016, there were also about a dozen sessions on Azure Stack.  Find those at aka.ms/AzureStack/Ignite. Finally, I have started a list on aka.ms/AzureStack/Shortcuts also.

At the core of it all, my IaaSOpsGuide will probably have the most usefulness for both Azure and Azure Stack as that page provides foundational information on Storage, Compute, Networking and Identity.  You can find that at aka.ms/Azure/IaaSOpsGuide.

Useful Training Resources

This is a HOT one I discovered!

  • Hands-On Labs many self-paced labs as well as instructor led for Azure

Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Templates - skills

Azure ARM Templates are how resources are deployed. Get them at aka.ms/AzureStack/Templates. Read Template Deployment, to understand about what JSON templates are and how they are used in Azure and Azure Stack. To take your learning to the next level with some free training, I'd recommend these resources below to eventually become an ARM Template Ninja!

PowerShell Skills

In Addition to knowing how to craft ARM Templates, from the resources above, PowerShell Skills also come in handy for either Azure or Azure Stack.  And who better to teach you than the inventor himself in these two online courses....most excellent Mr. Snover!

MORE TO COME!!!!!
