Hello, everyone, and welcome to Microsoft Azure Fundamentals.
00:05
You can use this course as preparation for the 900 certification exam. For Azure.
00:10
The course architect is Toddy Mladenov, and voiceover work will be provided by Jacob Salesman Current.
00:17
Before we start,
00:18
let me tell you a little bit about the course architect
00:22
Today. Mladenov is the co founder of Atari Technologies, a consulting and managed services company offering cloud based services for healthcare, manufacturing and education.
00:32
He has more than 20 years of experience in technology, from hardware and networking to software development, architecture and design.
00:41
He was one of the early members of the Microsoft Azure team between 2000 and nine and 2012, and since then cloud technologies have been his passion.
00:50
In addition to Azure, he helps clients deploy their application on other clouds like AWS and Google Cloud.
00:57
His official degree is in electronics and automation, but he specialized in information technologies
01:03
in his free time. He enjoys skiing in the winter and biking and sailing in the summer.
01:07
Now
01:08
let's jump into our topic for today.
01:12
In this video, I will explain who this courses for walk you through the course objectives
01:18
and list prerequisites for successful completion of the course.
01:25
So who is this course for?
01:26
This course is intended for students looking to demonstrate foundational knowledge of cloud services and how those services are implemented in azure.
01:36
This can be non technical professionals involved in sales or procurement of cloud technologies.
01:41
IT professionals who would like to extend their knowledge of cloud technologies and become familiar with Microsoft Azure
01:48
software developers who would like to learn about Microsoft azure services or really any other professionals who are interested in career change.
01:57
So what will we learn during this course?
02:00
At the end of this course, you will be able to understand and explain the cloud concepts and how they are implemented in azure.
02:08
Understand the core as your services.
02:10
Explain the different security, privacy and compliance features in azure, as well as how azure services are priced and supported.
02:20
Before we begin with the topic, here's what you'll need
02:25
to be successful in this course, you will need to have basic computer skills and know how to start and stop programs on your desktop or laptop.
02:34
You'll also need to have a basic understanding of how to use the command line
02:38
because we will explain services that utilize Internet as a medium. You will need to have some basic knowledge of how Internet and computer networks work.
02:46
Of course, you will need to be enthusiastic and have willingness to learn.
02:51
And the most important. You don't need to have prior knowledge of the Cloud and Microsoft Azure
02:59
because the cloud is something far, far away from your home. You will need to have a computer and good Internet connection and a browser.
03:06
If you have Windows 10 on your laptop, you need to enable the ssh client feature.
03:10
The following link describes how to do that.
03:15
If you run an older version of Windows, you will need to install a third party application like Putty or Seguin. To follow the instructions.
03:23
You can see the links to the download sites on the screen.
03:29
If you have already have a preferred ssh client on your Windows machine, you can continue to use that one.
03:37
Mac users will need a remote desktop client app to connect to virtual machines running windows.
03:42
You can download one of these from the Apple App store.
03:45
I would recommend Microsoft Remote Desktop 10.
03:49
I wouldn't use the eight version eyes. There are issues with it.
03:53
Lennox users will need our desktop installed. It's an open source client for Microsoft Windows Remote desktop protocol.
04:00
And finally, you will need a text editor that you can use for editing configuration files and scripts.
04:06
I personally prefer V s code that runs on every OS. But if you have different preferences up to you,
04:13
you can use anything from note pad plus plus on Windows to text Edit on Mac to vie or nano on Lennox.
04:20
One thing you need to be careful about is the new lines and coding that differs between Windows and UNIX based systems like Mac OS or Lennox.
04:30
Make sure that the text editor supports the new line conversion between those
04:34
or else you can experience some unexpected issues.
04:39
Keep in mind that the built in note pat editor and Windows does not support Lennox encoding for new lines, so I would recommend using Notepad plus Plus or V s code on Windows.
04:50
It's not required, but if you'd like, you can also install power shell corps on your machine.
04:58
If you use V s code as a text editor,
05:00
it'll give you a nice code highlighting and auto complete.
05:04
You can follow the link on the screen to find out how to install it on your preferred operating system.
