>> Hey everybody. Welcome to
00:00
the last lecture of the AZ-104 course.
00:00
Again, so happy that you've
00:00
made it all the way to this point.
00:00
I think at this point you should
00:00
have listened to all the lectures,
00:00
taken all of the labs,
00:00
probably you've even taken the practice exam,
00:00
but if not, we'll get to that in a minute.
00:00
Hopefully, you've also scheduled your exam.
00:00
We've covered just about everything,
00:00
but at this point, you may be thinking what's next.
00:00
There's a lot of certifications out there.
00:00
Should you continue going down Azures?
00:00
Should you explore other tracks?
00:00
I wanted to touch on that and that's what
00:00
we're going to be reviewing here.
00:00
We're going to be reviewing the next steps
00:00
of your Cloud journey.
00:00
Now, I have here
00:00
the Traditional Azure Certification Roadmap.
00:00
Typically, we start out as an
00:00
>> AZ-900 Azure Fundamentals,
00:00
>> and then we jump into Azure administrator or
00:00
developer or security engineer depending on your role.
00:00
Me personally, I'm a security engineer so
00:00
this might be the natural route
00:00
that I might want to take,
00:00
but if you're an IT operations engineer
00:00
or systems engineer or sys admin,
00:00
>> this might be a great one for you
00:00
>> and that's what we've taken.
00:00
>> What do you want to do after you have taken this exam?
00:00
Well, we have a couple prorated certification
00:00
or expert-rated certifications that you can go after.
00:00
The DevOps engineer is a good one,
00:00
the Azure Solution Architect is
00:00
the natural transition from our Azure Administrator.
00:00
This will help you get even
00:00
better on designing elaborate,
00:00
highly available, and secure
00:00
architecture in Microsoft Azure.
00:00
It also covers a lot of
00:00
the other services that we didn't touch on,
00:00
we talked a lot about the core infrastructure services
00:00
in this course.
00:00
The Azure Solution Architect is
00:00
going to talk about other things and talk about
00:00
how to expand it out in
00:00
different regions and different situations.
00:00
Really good course, and even better,
00:00
we actually offer this course,
00:00
this certification course in Cybrary,
00:00
>> so you can go continue on in your Cybrary journey,
00:00
>> your career track, and you will
00:00
find this certification course there.
00:00
Now, if you do not want to go for those,
00:00
maybe you would like to pivot
00:00
into the developer or the security engineer.
00:00
These are also great choices too for anybody
00:00
that maybe have taken
00:00
>> and this certification the AZ-100,
00:00
>> the AZ-104 certification,
00:00
and they want to go
00:00
and pursue one of these other certifications.
00:00
You might want to pass your Azure Administrator
00:00
and then jump into the developer,
00:00
maybe because you're interested in going for DevOps,
00:00
or maybe you jump into the Azure Security Engineer
00:00
because you're interested in learning how to
00:00
secure the Cloud a little better.
00:00
Both are great options for you,
00:00
so you have various options.
00:00
This is just within the Azure certification roadmap.
00:00
I didn't highlight the other certifications
00:00
you can't pursue,
00:00
but there's the other clouds out there,
00:00
there's the AWS, the Amazon Cloud, and they have
00:00
all different certifications that you can pursue.
00:00
We actually have several courses here in
00:00
Cybrary that I teach on AWS,
00:00
so if you'd like to jump into
00:00
that ecosystem,
00:00
you want to learn about a different Cloud,
00:00
you can go that route and maybe
00:00
pursue certification over there if you're interested.
00:00
We also have the option of going
00:00
with Google Cloud Platform or Alibaba,
00:00
there's a lot of other Clouds out there
00:00
>> and they all have certifications
00:00
>> for the most part, all the big ones do.
00:00
>> If you're interested in learning about other Clouds,
00:00
they're all great options.
00:00
Azure, AWS, and
00:00
Google Cloud are all going to be highly desirable.
00:00
If you have certifications,
00:00
you have a high chance of getting a job
00:00
or at least getting the opportunity
00:00
to get an interview for a job.
00:00
They're all good, solid choices,
00:00
I do recommend any of them if you are looking to move
00:00
on in your career as a Cloud engineer.
00:00
As I was saying earlier,
00:00
we do have Azure
00:00
Solutions Architect Certification course.
00:00
This is actually the course here
00:00
and it's taught by this instructor,
00:00
his name is Jeff Brown,
00:00
he's a great instructor, he has lots
00:00
of experience with Azure and so
00:00
he was selected to teach this course.
00:00
It's actually over 19 hours of content,
00:00
which is just amazing
00:00
and we see here he is highly rated.
00:00
Lots of really good content right here and
00:00
it's going to be right here within
00:00
the Cybrary subscriptions.
00:00
You can continue on and pursue
00:00
your Azure Solution Architect
00:00
certification if you'd like.
00:00
That wraps up this lecture, everybody,
00:00
this is actually the last lecture for this course.
00:00
Again, thank you so much for taking
00:00
the time to learn AZ-104 with me,
00:00
I hope that you have learned a ton.
00:00
If you have any feedback, I want to hear about it.
