Sitting at Frankfurt Airport and waiting for boarding to beginn I decided to write a short blog post on what I’m going to do in the week to come. I was invited to attend the Microsoft Cloud Architect Boot Camp in Seattle/Washington and I’m extraordinarily excited to be one of only 350 attendees worldwide.
C + E University Cloud Architect Boot Camp is a high quality technical training which internal Microsoft Cloud Solution Architects need to attend and Microsoft extends this event only to chosen Microsoft partners. So we as Partner Technology Solution Professionals (P-TSP), Global Black Belt Partners, and so on have been invited to apply for one of the limited seats in Seattle. You have to bring some experience with Azure with you and Microsoft describes it as follows:
The Cloud Architect Boot Camp is L300-400 technical training. It is exclusively oriented to those in “architect” roles on Infrastructure, Development and Data platform workloads at partner organizations who have advanced knowledge on Azure workloads. The training is not appropriate for those with only basic or intermediate knowledge of Azure.
The boot camp is divided into three parallel session tracks to make sure you get the best training for your respective architect role:
- Cloud Infrastructure
- Data and Analytics
- Cloud Applications Development
Training is provided by members of the Microsoft engineering teams around Azure, or in short: the folks you want to learn from. Every day’s agenda (below) is packed with loads of deep-dive learning sessions, whiteboard design sessions, hackathons and key notes.
This is the first time for me to attend one of the internal Microsoft trainings after I have been nominated and accepted as a P-TSP for Azure. I’m really looking forward to next week and I’m pretty sure that this training event will lift my Azure skills to the next level.
As information within the scope of the event is confidential I unfortunately cannot keep you up to date with content but I’m sure that you’ll participate and learn some cool new stuff in my blogposts to come as soon as new features will become general available.
Bye for now and stay tuned,
