New Pluralsight Course: Microsoft Azure Solutions Architect - Implement a Workload Management Strategy

I’m really happy to anounce that another course I’ve created for Pluralsight has gone live in their library today. This one has a wordy title, being Microsoft Azure Solutions Architect: Implement a Workload Management Strategy, and this is a part of the Azure AZ 303 Solutions Architect focused exam path. This year Pluralsight have been putting a very specific focus on creating Microsoft Azure content spificially targetted at helping learners learn exam objectives and pass the exam to achieve a certification, rather than going deep in to skill building of all of the solutions that are covered in an exam.

New Pluralsight Course: Formatting Data in PowerShell

New Pluralsight Course: Formatting Data in PowerShell I’m a bit late to the party with this post, as this course went live around the 27th of October, 2020, but I’m happy to say I’ve had my second course at Pluralsight recently go live!

This is a short post and I’ll cut straight to it. I’m really happy to announce that I’ve published my first course with Pluralsight, Extending PowerShell. The course is aimed at helping you learn and understand PowerShell Modules and is part of a larger learning path for PowerShell 7 that is being produced currently on PowerShell. I have worked hard to make this demo heavy in a way that you can follow along with each task, and I hope you do, as the hands-on is where the knowledge gets solidified.

Video Course: Azure Functions For DevOps Engineers

If you head on over to check it out, I’d also recommend browsing through the other content available at CloudSkills, there’s been so much success from students of the courses and there’s also some awesome upcoming workshops planned that you can enroll for.

Azure AZ-103 Certification Experience

Introduction Towards the end of 2019, I made a decision to aim for a certification in one of the primary public clouds. The decision on which cloud to focus on was relatively simple for me for a couple of reasons: Microsoft certianly seem to be doing awesome things with Azure and it feels like there is a lot of hype around Azure in the circles I travel in, at least more so than GCP or AWS I work for a partner and while not specifically in the team that are delivering public cloud solutions and managed services, we are currently 100% focused on Azure and are a Microsoft triple gold partner.
