How cool is that! A new certification is added, MCSA: Linux on Azure
This certification demonstrates your ability to design, architect, implement, and maintain complex cloud-enabled Linux® solutions that leverage Microsoft Azure open source capabilities. It also validates your Linux system administration skills to show that you are fluent in today’s cloud-native world.
You need to pass 70-533 “Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions” and the external exam “Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator“. After that contact the Microsoft North American Regional Service Center or outside of North America, email MCPHelp@microsoft.com to confirm that you passed both exams and you will become a MCSA: Linux on Azure.
I have done some projects in the past where I had to deal with Linux or Linux based appliances and doubted numerous times to do a Linux course. Now I have a good reason to start 🙂
