Introduction to Azure. Fundamentals for AZ900 certification

Ambizione Italia per il lavoro Course

The course introduces participants to cloud technology, delving into its complexities and how to coexist with current on-prem technologies, with the aim of achieving Microsoft AZ900 certification.

Starting with an overview of the physical components of a computer, we define the different types of cloud computing services IaaS, SaaS, PaaS and the services the cloud offers: virtual machines, scalability sets, storage, VPNs, Containers and more.

We familiarise ourselves with Powershell, a cross-platform task automation solution consisting of a command line shell, scripting language and configuration management framework that runs in Windows, Linux and macOS.

The final two meetings are dedicated exclusively to Microsoft certifications, to understand how they can be useful in the working world.

We will explore the material Microsoft makes available to prepare for certification exams as well as other useful platforms. We will look specifically at what topics are required for the AZ900 certification and how best to prepare for it.
