This course will take you through all of the relevant technologies and ensure you know which ones to pick to solve specific problems. This course is for developers, engineering managers, and cloud architects looking to get a better understanding of Azure services.

Whether your app deals with artificial intelligence, managing IoT devices, video media, or push notifications for smartphones, Azure has an answer for every use case. This course will help you get the most out of your Azure account by preparing you to make use of many different solutions.

Learning Objectives

  • Design solutions using Azure AI technologies

  • Design solutions for IoT applications using Azure technologies

  • Create a scalable messaging infrastructure using Azure messaging technologies

  • Design media solutions using Azure media technologies and file encoding

Intended Audience

  • People who want to become Azure cloud architects


  • General knowledge of IT architecture


For the Microsoft Azure 70-535 exam you will be expected to know a good bit about Azure’s machine learning offerings. Specifically the exam expects you to know when to use particular services to solve particular problems.


To that end we have divided section one, focusing on AI and machine learning, into two parts. The first part will give a thorough survey of Microsoft Azure’s machine learning solutions. We’ll explain what problems each solution solves and explain in depth how to actually use them. The second part of this section will focus on specific use-cases. We will offer several examples of problems and show how a specific Azure machine learning solution can help.


So without further ado, let’s get right into it with an overview of Azure artificial intelligence products.
