Cloud services have redefined the IT world. The major players in IaaS (Infrastructure as a service) have emerged as Amazon, Microsoft and Google.
These three cloud services share many features, but they also each possess their own strengths. Our course will cover the basic concepts you need to learn to have a frame of reference to build your knowledge of Azure.
In this course we will cover the basics of cloud services, the core components of the Azure flavor of cloud, and a few basic examples of how companies are using Azure today.
By the end of the course you will be able to name the core services offered by Azure, explain why companies commonly choose to use cloud services, and why companies specifically decide to use Azure.
If you find you don't quite understand something, that's okay. These skills take years to build, for now you only need to be familar with the sound of these new words and their basic concepts.
Congratulations on starting down a new path. These cloud services form the backbone of the way our information dependent world works. Even if your interest in the subject is passing you should find the knowledge gained here valuable. And it will give you insight into how much goes into giving users information on-demand.

In this course, you will develop the skills that you need to write effective and powerful scripts and tools using Python. We will go through the necessary features of the Python language to be able to leverage its additional benefits in writing scripts and creating command line tools (data types, loops, conditionals, functions, error handling, and more). Beyond the language itself, you will go through the full development process including project set up, planning, and automated testing to build two different command line tools.
This course begins with explaining the need of Machine Learning and how it originated from Aritificial Intelligence and gave rise to deep learning. We explain important concepts in ML including categories of algorithms, statistical and computer science terms used in model creation, feature engineering, overfitting, generalization, underfitting and cross validation. We also dive into the topic of data science and discuss why ML is an important part of data science.
The course then provides hands on training on Azure Machine Learning, giving a tour of ML Studio, its various features and the concept of an experiment. We demonstrate the process of creating ML experiments and create predictive models to predice automobile prices and generate recommendations for movies.
The exercises in this course allow the student to get familiar with Azure Machine Leaning and gain confidence in exploring the tool further.
This course is designed to help you learn and develop the requisite skills to pass the Microsoft Azure AZ-100 certification exam.

Candidates for this exam are Azure Developers who design and build cloud solutions such as applications and services. They participate in all phases of development, from solution design, to development and deployment, to testing and maintenance. They should be proficient in developing apps and services by using Azure tools and technologies, including storage, security, compute, and communications. Candidates must have at least one year of experience developing scalable solutions through all phases of software development and be skilled in at least one cloud-supported programming language.
As a student in this course, you will need to bring along your enthusiasm and desire to learn. You have the best chance of being successful if you:
Topics are presented by first introducing the exam objectives that will be covered in the lesson and skills measured on the exam. This will be followed by one or more lessons to demonstrate the assessed skills, with demonstrations of "how" and often "why". To close each section / topic, I will give you some exam tips and references. Note that these videos are opinionated in that they represent the experience of myself (combined with input from others) in taking the exam. The exam MAY, and CAN, ask other questions on topics not in the course as of yet, or may never be as they are too fringe and sparse for coverage. Therefore, make sure to study the references I give as additional answers are found on those references. I'll try and point them all out, but it is a moving target, and I'll update as thigns are identified.
