+ Who Should Attend

This course is for Azure Administrators. Azure Administrators manage the cloud services that span storage, networking, and compute cloud capabilities, with a deep understanding of each service across the full IT lifecycle. They take end-user requests for new cloud applications and make recommendations on services to use for optimal performance and scale, as well as provision, size, monitor and adjust as appropriate. This role requires communicating and coordinating with vendors.

Azure Administrators use the Azure Portal and as they become more proficient they use PowerShell and the Command Line Interface.

Students should have 1-2 years of experience as a developer. This course assumes students know how to code and have a fundamental knowledge of Azure. Students in this course are interested in Azure development or in passing the Microsoft Azure Developer Associate certification exam.
