GK# 4964

Course Overview


In this course you will learn the basics of provisioning, managing and monitoring Linux resources in Azure through hands-on challenges. The course provides Linux professionals with experience using Azure tools, provisioning and managing Linux virtual machines in Azure, and configuring Azure networking. Upon successfully completing the challenges in this course you will have the skills required to provision, manage, and access Linux-based resources in Azure.

For each topic in the course, our experts explain key concepts in high quality videos. Then we'll give you a real-world challenge, where you'll solve problems and implement solutions using real tools. If you have trouble or can't figure something out, we provide you all the support you need: demonstration videos, tips and tricks, and step-by-step procedures to get the job done.

After you complete each challenge, you can validate your work by looking at an example solution or submitting your work for expert review. If you submit your work you will receive feedback letting you know what skills you have successfully mastered and where you may need further work. This feedback will drive your next step: you can return to the challenge and work on it some more, or confidently move on to the next challenge.
