Last week I decided to get started with a new MCSD certification: Azure Solutions Architect. In a world where more customers want to take advantage of Microsoft Azure, it’s important to get my knowledge up-and-running. At my own company we are using Microsoft Azure for almost all our backend tasks. We are hosting sites, web services, SQL Azure databases and for example Virtual Machines with a regular SQL Server installation. We can manage them fine, but for some real troubleshooting our knowledge is not sufficient.


I love to learn by myself by reading books and spend some time with online training materials, like Microsoft Virtual Academy and PluralSight. So I ordered ‘Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions’, the exam reference for 70-532. I plan to write some blog posts about what I have learned and want to memorize. You are able to read my private exam summary notes. Keep posted!

If you have suggestions for other good reference materials, I’m happy to hear!
