Mustafa Toroman, MVP for Microsoft Azure, shared with us the talk “Azure loves Containers” as part of AP’s Dev Talks Meetup. I enjoyed it a lot so I just felt like sharing.
Mustafa published several books on cloud technologies. Lately, his focus is on designing new solutions in the cloud and migrating existing ones to the cloud. Mustafa possesses over 40 Microsoft certifications. Also, he has held the MCT title for many years and has been awarded the MVP for Microsoft Azure for the last four years in a row. He often speaks at international conferences about cloud technologies and now it’s time for Dev Talks Meetup where he will cover topic ‘Azure Loves Containers’.
Containers are the latest big thing in the cloud. They are light, fast, and consistent. And they fit very well into DevOps. Azure offers multiple container options to choose from. And each one of them makes deployment of our applications easy. Let’s see how to build your containers and deploy them anywhere.
So, I have just passed Exam AZ-900: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals
For all of you that are thinking of taking this exam, here is how I passed, just 2 steps:
Step 1: Microsoft Learn: Learning Paths
Microsoft offers Azure Fundamentals Learning Paths for free in Microsoft Learn, I studied this material, part 1 to 5; this is the recommended online training for this exam from Microsoft.
Microsoft Certified: Azure Fundamentals – Learn | Microsoft Docs
Step 2: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals Certification Course (AZ-900) video from freeCodeCamp
I really liked the structure of this video; it allows you to go through a lot of Azure concepts divided in small capsules (2-5 minutes) which give you a good overview of Azure.
And that’s it, that’s the preparation I had before presenting the exam.
However, I must say that I had a little of hands-on experience with Azure myself and even though I don’t have experience with every topic from the exam, it definitely helped. So, if Azure is completely new for you, you should consider adding a few more elements to your exam preparation.
Here are some ideas from a colleague that presented the exam and nailed it!
