Welcome to this course.

Fully captioned in English. Spanish captions being added.

This course has been continually improved and covers the AZ-204 Azure developer topics.

Microsoft Azure is a skill in high demand in today's large business marketplace.

If you're a developer, you know as well as I do that change is always happening. It's not possible for all of us to be up-to-date on every piece of new technology out there, but this is not one of those times. Cloud-hosting has changed the way all applications are developed—from websites, to web applications, to mobile apps, and traditional backend applications as well. The rapid adoption of the cloud has touched everything. 

The next time your resume is on someone's desk—be it a promotion at work or a new job opportunity—you cannot afford to have such an obvious gap in knowledge. Can you imagine being a front-end web developer today and not being able to talk about mobile-first or responsive design? Industry trends show that developing applications that have cloud-hosted components is becoming the in-demand skill of tomorrow. Having Azure skills on your resume will only help you get in front of more hiring managers, and land more jobs.

This course goes through all of the requirements of the Microsoft exam AZ-204: Developing Solutions for Microsoft Azure exam. While other online resources cover bits and pieces of the topic, I can confidently say this course goes deep on everything you need to know for this exam. Multiple videos are devoted to each sub-objective, and this course also includes a full sample test so you can see how ready you are to take the real test.

If you don't have much previous exposure to Azure, this course will cover each core section in detail. If you ARE already an expert at many Azure topics, you can easily skip the sections that you already know and focus on the sections that are new to you.

This Azure exam is tough. But these videos will guide you through the Azure interface, and through your own practice and experience with the platform.

You get lifetime access to the course, and so there are no silly "30-day" countdowns that require you to pay more to extend access. This course will be here when you need it.

high level

Feels like its sort of just high level nowadays we using EF only add that example too Up to the point content and great explanation of the topics.

If this course was titled "Introduction to Developing with Azure" or "A High Level Overview of Azure", I'd give it five stars.

If you're looking for a well delivered high level overview to get you started, this is the course for you.

There are a lot of objectives not included in the course and, others included are explained in a very high level, far away from the requirements of the exam.

Looks very high level.

passed the exam today but found this training very very high level.

so far i have seen is very good Course content was on a high level, not relevant to beginner.

This course is a really high level overview and does not provide the comprehensive material for 70-532 exam.

Seems way to high level, some subject such as event hubs were only explained with the landing page in view, no explanation of what an event hub actually is or looks like, settings etc and no code samples.

Generally though it's way too high level when in reality the exam will contain many questions around c#, powershell, cli and more in-depth knowledge of the features in Azure that are presented here.

Too high level... not much explanation of technologies, implementation and use cases Course assumes you are starting from level 0 which is a great thing.

The details are at high level, was expecting little bit more in depth details on the topics So far, I like it.

able to pass

I have no doubt that I will be able to pass, due in no small part to this Udemy course.

Was able to pass the example comfortably after following this course.

I was able to pass the exam at first attempt, but I did not expect it.

The course is ok, but you won't be able to pass the exam from this.

highly recommend

TL;DR, highly recommend this course for anyone who don't know where to start.

i wouldn't highly recommend it anymore.

I highly recommend it.

This is highly recommended - if your wanting to learn azure and get a great guide for the exam then this is a very very good place to start with.

I would highly recommended going through azure documentation and measure up practice test.

This class is absolutely required as a beginning, I also highly recommend the Udemy practice test and the official practice test.

I highly recommend this course if you're taking the 70-532 exam.

Highly recommend, and I've gone for Scott's courses for the AZ3 expert level certification exams Explaining with demo code was good Lots of topics covered, Extremely thankful on telling 8 ways to get Azure account Thanks for the course and the topics it covered.

way of teaching

Needed more practical way of teaching using examples and scenarios.

way of teaching the concepts is very good but that would be better if real time scenarios was well discussed because that would get a clear insight of what exactly is going on Excellent course, broken down well, with a perfect balance of description and demonstration.

:) Very clear and easy to understand, good flow muy bueno very descriptive and informative Excellent way of teaching.

excellent way of teaching...

following this course

After following this course I passed the AZ-203 exam - the course content was highly relevant to the stated exam objectives, just to note - it would be hard the find elsewhere the same quality of learning material for the AZ-203 Course is very to the point.

I couldn't get the big picture by following this course.

I have had a great experience so far following this course.

service fabric

The course was not updated, it does not covers Service Fabric, Azure Cognitive Services, IoT solutions.

If I had to be very critical then only point of improvement would be a bit more details or a deployment example on offerings such as Service Fabric, containers etc.

Service Fabric 3.

Few concepts needs more explanation like Shared Access Signature, policies, Service fabric and few more.

exam now envolved: - Mobile app (NOT covered) - Service fabric (was only explained what it is, without creating an example) Also a few things were rushed over without giving a good explaination of what it could be used for.

it does cover 85-90% of the course content & missing last few topics on 'Develop Azure App Service Logic Apps & Mobile Apps & Azure Service Fabric apps' , other than that course is thorough with great examples in a simpler way.

each section

It would been better if each section comes with more practice questions.

I am learning something new in each section.

me da seguridad de que todo eso es necesario para el examen, extiende mucho sin dar algo seguro There should be a quiz for each section which helps gauge the understanding.

Need more explanation on each section.

Probably the instructor could add 'Further reading' at the end of each section.

End of section 3, and I'm annoyed to see that the bulk of how to do things has been shoved off into documentation at the end of each section.

real world

allow for more Activity probably at critical section as appose to only towards the end or section Explanation is good and the way use of the services in the real world is explained really adds value.

Information is real world relevant and certification relevant.

I thought this course had a great overview of a lot of things that will be used in a real world solution angenehme Stimme, gutes Tempo, gutes Mass an Informationen pro Segment It always good to know about the exam type and pattern before going to start.

Could do with more real world examples in terms of when you'd use different azure features, but code examples are clear and having practical examples is a good way of reinforcing information.

study plan

Thanks Scott Good presentation, well organized, covers the needed topics, like study plan.

The other thing is that the instructor has suggested a study plan which I think slowed me down a bit and made me think about the course more logically.

too basic, assume a lot of things, The study plan is one good thing that the instructor provided for us to learn azure and prepare for the exam.

I like the study plan.

Good Session So far well its very clear about the procedure followed in exam 70-532 compared to other respective site very good explanation good so far The motivation and the study plan guide line.

cosmos db

Now I think about to work on something like Cosmos DB, Logic app, Multi factor authentication or more.

I think You should need to explain more piratical details in Cosmos DB & SQL data base topic like CRUD operation .Other wise every this is good.

Cosmos DB new additions Overall the course is beautiful, but I feel the content is lacking in terms of new addition to the course.

Its very important complement the lessons with the new topics, some questions were about Azure Key Vault, CLI, Cosmos DB, Cloud Foundry, DevOps and deeper hard code into Functions.
