Azure Exam Changes Oct 2018. At Microsoft Ignite 2018, the Microsoft certification and learning teams announced a new type of question that will appear on the Azure beta exams. This is called performance testing. Essentially, during the exam, you will have a little “hands on lab” pop up and you are to perform a few tasks.
Imagine being given a “Cloud Shell”, and asked to create a resource group with the following properties, a virtual network with the following properties, and a virtual machine inside that. It sounds complex.
But you can choose Powershell or CLI. You can try executing commands, and if they fail, fix them. Use whatever tools existing in the Cloud Shell to get the job done. And at the end of the exam, you’re only judged on whether the task was completed. Not how it was done, but if it was done successfully.
I love this idea. Very interesting. And a good way to test true knowledge versus memorization.
In this video, I show you how to create a Windows Web App in Microsoft Azure. Windows Web App. We go through the Azure Portal, and see how form fields get filled in. If you can’t afford to create resources in Azure, but want to see how it’s done in 2018, this is the video for you.
