Last week I have delivered a training session in Ljubljana, Slovenia, about Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions (70-534). The Microsoft Slovenia subsidiary was looking for a trainer, and I offered to deliver it free of charge, as volunteer work in the MVP Program, provided that they will only pay for the hotel.
I got the deal, and I spent three great days on Mar 22-24, 2016 in Ljubljana, delivering the course. This was a new training, created by Opsgility, the content was available only a few weeks before the training. The agenda included:
- Introduction to Azure
- Azure Virtual Machines
- Hybrid Identity
- Virtual Machine Storage
- Core Networking
- Implementing Hybrid Networking
- Managing VMs with Azure Resources Manager
- Storage, Backup and DR
- Introduction to Azure PaaS
The course also included great hands-on labs and four architecture case studies. The course is very rich in content, it has a total of 574 presentation slides.
We had 20 attendees from Microsoft Partners, who appreciated the course.
I am highly recommending this course to anyone interested in a deep dive in Azure infrastructure. Since the course is heavy on content, I would recommend allocating at least 4 days for it (it was initially designed as a 5-day course).
Please see below some pictures from the training. The only drawback was that the screen obstructed the great view from the training room windows. But we enjoyed that during the breaks.
