Passed AZ-900; experiences with OnVue exam at home

It's nice when sidetracks during learning lead to measurable results. Case in point: while setting up the labs for the BHIS "Applied PurpleTeaming" training, I needed to quickly learn about Azure Cloud. ... And now I've passed the AZ-900 exam! :D

Microsoft offers (most of) their exams to take at-home remotely, through Pearson Vue's "OnVue" service. I already worked with OnVue back in August, when taking the Cloud+ beta exam. My experience this time around was very similar: the tooling works well, as long as you make sure to turn off your local outbound firewall like Little Snitch

As to the AZ-900 exam: it was a nice motivator (the proverbial carrot on the stick) for me to go through the six Azure Fundamentals modules on Microsoft Learn. I'm happy to have finally gotten some hands-on experience with Azure Cloud, or basically any cloud provider beyond running a shortlived VM on AWS.

After completing the BHIS APT training I intend to play around with Azure a bit more... Maybe I'll even rebuild this website on there! tags: , ,
