Getting Microsoft Certified: Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900)

The first major step on my way to learn and use Azure was to pass the Microsoft Certified: Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900) exam. Exam itself is not hard, but it requires a lot of preparations and memorization and luck, since some questions I didn't encounter while preparing. I have passed it on the first try, but I wouldn't say that it was a breeze.

I have spent around 10 days to prepare for it, with a final score of 925/1000. I have several years of experience with software development, and I have used AWS in production, so I was familiar with the concepts of cloud computing and cloud services.


I have used the following resources:

At the same time, I've found an interesting YouTube channel that focuses on Azure, DevOps, Terraform, and other related topics — Azure Terraformer by Mark Tinderholt. His videos are very useful and informative, for those interested in learning how to use Terraform with Azure ecosystem, and I highly recommend checking them out. Although it is about more advanced topics, it is still very helpful in starting to prepare for AZ-104 and AZ-400 exams.

The next step for me is to get the Microsoft Certified: Azure Administrator Associate (AZ-104) certificate.
