This learning path is designed to help you and your team prepare for the AZ-300 Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies exam. Even if you don't plan to take the exam, these courses and hands-on labs will help you gain a solid understanding of how to architect a variety of Azure services.
The AZ-300 and AZ-301 exams replace the older 70-535 exam, which was retired on December 31, 2018. These two exams are part of Microsoft’s new role-based certification program. Candidates who pass both exams will earn the Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification.
The AZ-300 exam tests your knowledge of five subject areas and that’s how we’ve structured this learning path as well. We’ll start with deploying and configuring Azure infrastructure. This is the biggest section, and it covers a wide variety of topics, including storage, virtual machines, networking, and Azure Active Directory. Next, we’ll show you how to implement workloads and security. After that, you’ll learn how to create and deploy apps using either Azure App Service or Azure Container Service. Next, you’ll learn how to implement authentication and encryption. Finally, we’ll cover how to develop for the cloud using autoscaling and messaging.
