Welcome to the Designing Advanced Applications course. This is part of the Azure 70-534 learning path.
The Azure 70-534 exam is not easy and it requires that you have at least a general knowledge of a wide range of topics.
The goal of this course is to help you fill in any knowledge gaps. Now if you're like me, then you don't use all that Azure has to offer on most days and that means that you might have some gaps in your knowledge.
This course is intended to cover the topics for the domain objective to help you fill in those gaps. Those topics include creating compute-intensive applications, integrating Azure services into a solution, implementing messaging applications, implementing applications for background processing, and designing connectivity for hybrid applications.
Now if you're already proficient in any one of these areas, then you can feel free to skip through any of the lessons and if you're already proficient in all of these areas, then you could probably skip this course entirely and move onto the next one. However, if you're planning on sticking around, then let's get started with the first lesson.
