The Azure Developer learning program leading to certification is about to start!

This is a great opportunity for you to go on a rewarding journey into the depths of Azure. This hybrid learning program culminates in the completion of the Microsoft 70-532 “Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions” certification. The Azure Developer program progresses at a suitable speed, taking advantage of self-study modules and workshops, to ensure that you can fully assimilate the information being taught.

The total duration of the learning program is three months. The independent studies take approximately eight hours per week. This means that you can complete your studies alongside work, using new technologies to gradually complete the learning program in your own environment. You will have access to the Sovelto Space collaborative learning platform, which enables experiences and questions to be shared, and students to coach each other. The platform is managed by an experienced trainer. This means that you can enjoy both the freedom of self-study and the support of a learning community!

What can you expect to learn and how:

The program starts with a 90-minute Kickoff webinar with the aim of introducing participants to each other, agreeing on appropriate practices, and ensuring that each participant’s learning environment is good to go (including Azure subscription, Sovelto Space, and self-study modules).

The first self-study package

The learning program includes a total of six self-study modules that introduce you to Azure application development. After completing every self-study module, you will receive a certificate of completion in Microsoft Academy. During the first self-study package, you will complete three modules.

1. Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines

  • How IaaS uses virtual machines and the basic concepts of endpoints and IP addressing.
  • How to determine virtual machine workloads and correctly size your virtual machines.
  • How to plan, create, and deploy Azure Windows virtual machines.
  • How to configure virtual machine IP addresses, availability, scalability, and security.
  • How to manage, attach, import and export virtual disks.

2. Microsoft Azure Virtual Networks

  • How to plan virtual networks in Microsoft Azure.
  • How to implement and manage virtual networks.
  • How to configure inter-site connectivity with Microsoft Azure virtual networks.

3. Azure App Services

  • How to describe Azure App Service
  • Deployment of Web Apps using Azure App Service
  • How to manage deployed Web Apps and Web Jobs
  • Deployment of Mobile apps
  • How to manage Mobile App deployments
  • How to create and modify ARM templates for use with App Service deployments

The second self-study package

During the second self-study package, you will complete two modules.

4. Databases in Azure

  • How to plan for, deploy, and provision Azure SQL Database.
  • How to implement, secure, and manage Azure SQL Database.
  • How to use metrics, alerts, auditing, and dynamic management views to monitor Azure SQL Database.
  • How to use Azure SQL Data Warehouse for Big Data solutions.

5. Developing NoSQL Solutions

  • NoSQL fundamentals
  • Overview of NoSQL options in Azure Cosmos DB
  • Fundamental techniques for using the DocumentDB API, Tables API, and MongoDB API
  • Other techniques for accessing and improving performance of your NoSQL storage

Participation in the workshop requires that you have successfully completed the previous self-study modules. The workshop will be held on Sovelto premises or online, if you so wish. The workshop lasts for two days, during which you will focus on using the techniques you have learned through case exercises. You can forget about PowerPoint presentations, as this workshop is all about learning by doing. Case exercises are done in small groups, and your solutions are also presented in the group, so as to broaden the participants’ knowledge.


Hybrid learning

In hybrid learning, you take online courses and have the support of online webinars held by an expert. After successfully completing the online course, you will receive a Microsoft certificate of completion. The course starts with a kickoff webinar that presents the outline of the program and the study methods, and gets you started with your studies. The program includes online sessions in which an expert teaches and illustrates course topics, which help you progress in your studies. The online courses include modules that are appropriately sized for completion in everyday life or alongside work. The modules include instructional videos, tests, links to additional materials, multiple-choice quizzes, and similar assignments, to ensure learning success.

The studies require you to be systematic and to work independently. You should, therefore, schedule the online sessions and the time needed for self-study in your calendar, to ensure that your studies progress on time.
