Technical Reviewer: Microsoft Official Courseware 20537A – Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with #Microsoft #AzureStack

Hello folks,

Over the past few months, I’ve been actively busy working as Technical Reviewer for the Microsoft Official Courseware (MOC) 20537A: Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with Microsoft Azure Stack.

I am very proud and grateful for the opportunity I have been given to review this course.

I want to thank the content developers Ryan Boud and Justin Kimber for the amazing work they’ve done in this course. Kudos to INFRAMON team!!!

This course is intended for IT Professionals, DevOps, and Cloud Architects who are interested in using Microsoft Azure Stack to provide cloud services to their end users or customers from within their own datacenter. This 5-day Instructor-led classroom-based training will provide students with the key knowledge required to deploy and configure Microsoft Azure Stack. Using hands-on labs, students will learn the following:

Microsoft is also working on the 70-537 Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with Microsoft Azure Stack certification exam which is currently in development and is planned to be released in January 2018. At this time there is very limited information about what the exam objectives will be covering, however, with the release of the Microsoft Official Courseware 20537A: Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with Microsoft Azure Stack, you will be armed with the required knowledge to pass this exam successfully.

I highly encourage you to find the nearest Microsoft Learning Partner near you and attend this course in-person.

I hope you enjoy the course as much as I enjoyed reviewing it.

Happy studying!

Cheers,
