Microsoft Virtual Academy resources

May 21, 2012

Last night I decided to have a go at the resources found at the MVA, Microsoft Virtual Academy.


Currently there are a lot of resources there that helps you get started learning about Microsoft technologies. There are a lot of topics found there: Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Server System Center 2012, IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, Office 365, Windows Azure, SQL Azure, Hyper-V, VMware, VDI, Virtualization, Business Intelligence, Clustering, Security, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server “8”, Windows Client, SQL, System Center Virtual Machine Manager, Windows Phone

Why not start out with the Configuring and deploying Microsoft’s Private Cloud specialization course.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, do it now…

Exam Crams – Recorded Sessions

May 7, 2012

Veronica Sopher has added a tip for some some excellent content on the 60Days2MCSE study group page in the MCSE Private Cloud forum.

The post is about the Microsoft Certified Career Conference (MCCC) which they have held for three years now. In the post Veronica specifies how you can get access to the recordings and it is a lot of useful stuff. 

So if you are going for the MCSE or just want to prepare for another exam/exams this is a great source of preparation material.

Register and take advantage of the resources, you know I do!
