Welcome to this certification course on Microsoft’s AZ-204 – Developing Solutions for Microsoft Azure.
This course is designed to prepare you to sit for and pass your exam to prove your skills in using cloud development technologies on the Azure platform. Throughout the course, we’ll take a good look at the technologies you’ll need to know for the exam and help you not only understand what each service does, but also how you can apply the knowledge you gain here in your own environment.
It’s worth saying that this exam can be tough if you’re not familiar with the topic domains.
There are 5 domains in total for the AZ-204 Exam:
- Developing Azure Compute Solutions
- Developing for Azure Storage
- Implementing Azure Security
- Monitoring, Optimizing, and Troubleshooting Solutions
- Connecting to and Consuming Azure and Third-Party Services
If you’re unfamiliar with some of these topics, this course will provide you with guidance and help prepare you for the questions you’ll face. However, if you’re just starting out, this will be a challenge for those unexposed to Azure. One to two years experience in working with Azure services such as containers, databases, and/or functions is the general expectation.
Within each domain are a variety of sub-topics that we’ll cover in greater detail throughout the course. We’ll go through each domain, using each previous lesson as part of the foundation for the next topic, making it so that you not only can answer the questions on the exam, but also have a practical knowledge of how these pieces fit together and how you can design solutions to common problems faced in enterprises today.
This is meant to help you critically think about the best solution to common issues in today’s cloud landscape, which will be invaluable when presented with situational questions on the AZ-204 exam and in your career.
We’ll get your hands dirty with hands-on labs to solidify your knowledge in more complex topics, and you can look forward to practice questions throughout the course to ensure you’re ready to move on.
So with all of that being said, it’s time to jump in and start your journey to get the AZ-204.
