This week I had some time to start with the new certification series from Microsoft. I started with the certification exam Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ-900. This exam gives a basic overview of Microsoft Azure and Cloud Computing in general.
The contents of this exam are divided into 4 categories were you need basic understanding:
- Cloud Concepts
- Core Azure Services
- Security, Privacy and Compliance
- Azure Pricing and Support
Why take the exam?
I recommend Azure Fundamentals exam to anyone new to cloud computing and especially Microsoft Azure. While learning you will get a good overview of Microsoft Azure. For the exam itself, it is important to have a good understanding of cloud concepts. For this reason it will not be enough to use only Microsoft Azure documentation or the Microsoft Learning Portal. Therefore I recommend to unlock a free Azure Pass and experiment with $200 for 1 month.
As written in the introduction, the new certification series of starts with this examination. You can find an overview of the possible certification path you want to go here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/browse-new-certification.aspx
I hope there are some readers who will take this exam soon and I’m looking forward to your feedback.
