There is an upcoming free event on Channel 9 which will provide a bunch of good info to help you take the 70-533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions exam.

I'm sure that when the sessions/times are announced, they wont work well for us here in NZ, but the sessions will all be recorded and you will be able to watch offline post-event.

There is a still a good reason to sign up for this, even if you don't plan to do the event live, as follows:
* Register through Microsoft Virtual Academy to receive reminder mails for this event and to obtain details for receiving a voucher for 50 percent off the exam price if taken by January 31st.

Thanks Regs, looks good.

Quite good timing for NZ, 6am to 10am for the live event.

timmmay: Interesting, but who's going to watch four solid days of video?!


Probably someone who doesn't want to pay the money for a 3-day or 5-day in-person course at Ace or Auldhouse.  (which are very similarly priced to the AWS courses offered by Bespoke)

There are also plenty of other resources available including the following:

* Microsoft Virtual Academy : http://aka.ms/mvaazure

Yeah those AWS courses are expensive. I just read the AWS extensive and easily accessible documentation, passed with a very high mark that way. Does Azure have a centralised and easy documentation repository the way AWS and Google has?

That's a good start, but it seems they have a LOT of catching up to do.
