Hello. Welcome to this course titled a Z 300 Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies. In this episode, I'm gonna cover what this course is about as well as introduced myself.
My name is Jeff Brown, and I'll be your guide as we work through this course, learning about Azure.
I have worked in the I T industry for just over 12 years now, primarily working with Microsoft Technologies such as Windows Server Exchange, Skype for Business Office 3 65 and Power Show.

So the existential question, What do we do in here? My course objective for you are to learn Azure and to prepare you for the A C 300 exam.
We're gonna do this through lecture involving some slides and white Board E. But primarily I'm gonna have lots of demos for you. Microsoft is adding more performance based testing on their certification exams, meaning you're given access to a really azure portal and are required to complete several tasks.
My goal is to show you as much as possible on howto work in the azure portal so you could be prepared for this portion of the exam.

If you've never taken a look at a Microsoft exam, ejected Page, let's check out this link below to Seymour about what we will be learning.
Here we have the reference page for the A C 300 exam. If we move down the page, we will find the skills measured section, which has the same five topics that our main modules will be built on for this first topic of deploying configure infrastructure. We'll focus on sub topics such as utilization and consumption,
storage accounts, virtual machines and networking. Each skills measured section has its own set of sub topics, and we'll be covering almost all of them
that does it for our introduction. Coming up next, we're going to dive into the first topic here where we discuss what is cloud computing. Let's get started and I'll see you and the next episode
