We were in the middle of launching a TON of content and then 2 months ago microsoft threw away all their azure certification and announced new AZ certs. We immediately started work on it. Remember, at Linux Academy you get practice exams, interactive diagrams, hands-on labs, instructor help, and continuous content updates. We have added four Azure training architects on the team and will be launching new Azure certifications this month at our live shows!
The only down side is on December 28th two of the certs we were working on that were "beta" were canceled by microsoft and rolled into a different exam. We have been making those changes as well. However, we will be launching Azure content this month and only increasing as the year goes on!
We would have had a lot more out sooner if Microsoft didn't make those exam changes and as drastic as they did. It takes us about 3 months to build content with all those premium features you only get at Linux Academy like Interactive diagrams, hands-on labs and note cards.
Keep in mind, those sites you mentioned don't build content the same way. they don't come with the same features, and it takes us a bit longer to buildmore than power point brain dumps.
Also, if you take a look at the very top announcement on the site, or the middle one about our January content updates we have already announced Azure is coming this month. So everything you have wished for is arriving at Linux Academy.
Their AZ-100 offering is 17 total videos, taught by 8 different people. They range from 1-2 hours each and the time of creation is from Aug. of last year until mid-December... I have not taken the content, so cannot speak to quality or coverage of topics. However, when complete, our course will have well over 60 videos, it is taught by one instructor, has interactive and hands-on labs (including real console access to Azure resources - at no cost to you), flash cards, interactive diagrams and a practice exam.
As you might imagine, that takes time to craft in a way that provides the quality everyone expects out of us. We are constantly working on efficiencies that can help accelerate our development, but we will never compromise the quality and features of our course material in order to simply be first to market. We value our student success too much.
Microsoft started to put this in their certification portal like from October end and I believe the extended to EOL date for Azure exams to somewhere around July. I will confirm that.
I'm curious, they put it on the certfication protal in october. How long do you think it takes to build the course with 100% objective coverage, hands-on labs, interactive diagrams, practice exams and flash cards and during a holiday season?
@anthony By October mid(to the best of my knowledge), in the certification portal (you have to open the 533 and 532 page) they have mentioned that the these exams will be retired by December 31st and I believe they have extended the dates for now.
My point is, you have to give us more than 2 months to complete the course, or else you will be upset it's poor quality like those other ones.
I have been subscribed for courses in Udemy as well. I enjoyed courses, ran by real professionals. Information short and concise. Currently I am subscribed for https://essaydune.com/pay-for-essay/ course.
