Azure Solutions Architect Technologies (AZ-300)

This course covers the essentials that a Solutions Architect on Microsoft Azure will need to use Microsoft Azure as their cloud platform for a project. You’ll learn how to deploy and configure cloud infrastructure, implement worklads and security, architect solutions, create and deploy apps, implement authentication, secure data, and develop for the cloud. Microsoft Azure is continuously updated so versioning of the cloud is not a concern in this tech space.
