AZ-500 exam preparation series

When I studied to my own AZ-500, I decided that I will make my own Exam Cram, study guide or whatever you want to call it. The goal will be on passing the exam or just refreshing Your brain.

I learned from the community and now it’s time to give something back to the community, enjoy!

The sections

There are multiple different sections in the exam, I wrote them more clearly below than in Microsoft Learn site. The sections are based on Microsoft update exam outline for September 29th 2021

After every heading there is a link to a YouTube video (Coming later) and after that one to a written instruction covering the section content.
