BRAND NEW COURSE
V1.07 New videos added in November 2016. Changes to exam coming in Nov 2016. User Defined Routes and IP Forwarding. Azure Application Gateway. AD Connect. Course constantly improving.
Course will be modified to match new exam requirements going live in November 2016.
Microsoft Azure is a skill in high demand in today's large business marketplace.
Microsoft recently introduced 3 new certification tests around Azure, and 4 certifications. This course is the complete study preparation course for 70-534: Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions. Passing this test gives you the "Microsoft Specialist: Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions" certification.
I'm quite confident that this is the most complete training course targeted specifically at the exam. Microsoft doesn't even have any official training available at this time.
While the technology world is full of "buzzwords" and "flavors of the month", the cloud is a real paradigm shift in the way solutions are designed and architected. There are now so many reasons why you should include Azure cloud technology in your solutions design that there are almost no reasons why not to do it.
Cost savings is the one that catches the attention of businesses. Some companies are spending millions of dollars per month of their IT infrastructure, and every few years that hardware needs to be repaired and upgraded. Being able to reduce the capital investment and essentially rent powerful equipment on demand is quite a lot of up front savings.
If you add in the scalability, flexibility, and worldwide reach of the cloud, and the technology group sees the potential as well. You can truly do more with less.
This course goes through all of the requirements of the Microsoft exam 70-534: Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions. Multiple videos are devoted to each sub-objective, and we cover the topic thoroughly.
Most of the courses and content you find online assumes you already have expert knowledge of Azure and just tells you what to study, spending only seconds covering entire objectives. I can confidently say this course goes deep on everything you need to know.
If you ARE already an expert at many Azure topics, you can easily skip the sections that you already know and focus on the ones you have not yet had much exposure too. This is the benefit of having the complete course.
Each section has additional web-based resources for you to do further research and expand your knowledge beyond the requirements of the exam.

Hi there, my name is Scott Duffy. And I love making complex technical topics easy to understand.
This has been the basis of my entire career – as a developer, as a development manager, as a software architect – over the past 20 years. I spend half my time in the world of business, explaining complex technical topics to business owners and stakeholders so that they can understand and agree with my approach to solving their business problems with technical solutions. And the other half with developers, explaining the business reasons behind decisions and ensuring that any decisions made on the technical side don't restrict the business in unexpected ways.
And I'm here on Udemy to teach what I know in an approachable way. I started with TOGAF 9.1. That document is long and not written in a way that is easy to understand. I am a member of the Open Group, and am hold a commercial license to teach TOGAF.
I have been developing with Microsoft technologies for 20 years, starting with Classic ASP, and all the versions of .NET. We now live in the cloud era, with Microsoft Azure being prevalent in most large enterprises. I'm certified as an Azure Architect too.
Please don't hesitate to drop me a message if you have a suggestion for a topic for one of my courses, or need help with something. I may not always be able to help you directly, but I would still love to talk to you.
Software Architect provides quality online training about Enterprise Architecture. Whether you are just starting out, or are a grizzled veteran in the field, Software Architect provides courses to help you take your career to the next level.
Software Architect is run by Scott Duffy, who is a TOGAF Certified architect and trainer. Scott's consulting company, Little Oliver Consulting, is a member of The Open Group architecture forum, which helps set the standards for the future.
