Last year in October, Microsoft announced some sweeping changes to it's exams.
And this year, they did it again. At the MS Ignite conference, they announced changes to the requirements for two exams - 70-532 Azure Developer and 70-533 Azure Infrastructure. Let's look at the 70-533 changes with this post. I reviewed the 70-532 changes here.
The changes are slated to take effect on October 12, 2017. They are posted to the US website only, and so there's no official word as to how this will be rolled out internationally.
There used to be six objectives and now there are eight. Microsoft shuffled some things around, so that topics that used to fall under one objective now were moved to another.
It's hard to judge, since they moved things around a bit. But virtual machines, virtual networks, and security are the top 3. Storage and Active Directory (identity) fell the most.
