In this post, I am excited to share about – how you could use your Microsoft Build 2020 registration/account to sign-up for Cloud Skills Learning Challenge and complete at least one challenge to earn a complementary Azure exam voucher, by June 2, 2020.
Thank you @Microsoft for this generous offer. Really appreciated!
So buckle-up friends, and Let’s START!
First thing first, you would need to have following 3 things:
I have been asked about free, online training resources. I have compiled, to my best knowledge, all recent training resources in this post. However, please feel free to add your comments (aka, 2 cents 💰) and extend this list together 🙂
All the training resources could be used by anyone around the glob 24/7. Note that few training resources are geared toward certain US state learning programs.
I truly hope, you could share these resources with your friends, who might be looking for affordable training, and prepare themselves for a better future.
Hello my FHIR-ly friends, and welcome to my first post on Microsoft FHIR server!
Over the last few months, i worked with Microsoft Open Source FHIR Server (OSS) and wanted to share my experience on setting it up and running locally. Yes, you may run it locally without internet 🙂
This might be helpful, if you just starting to learn HL7 FHIR (https://www.hl7.org/fhir/) and don’t / can’t spin one on your cloud environment of choice. You might also use any publicly available FHIR endpoints, discover-able from the link above.
Following steps will assist you in spinning it with a Cosmos DB (emulator flavor) or a more traditional SQL Server instance. Well, let’s start right away!
Install Visual Studio 17/19 with updates (the community version is FREE 🙂
We have 2 dependencies: Cosmos DB emulator or SQL Server (depending on the data layer you’ve chosen). We will continue with instructions on Cosmos DB, and show the tip for launching it with local SQL instance as well.
It is usually hard to start a new initiative within a company due to a myriad of reasons. 🤔 Thus, this post will focus on how to follow some descriptive steps in starting a new Cloud Journey whereever you are in your life 🙂
Let’s check a simple approach 💡 below that could guide us on cloud ☁️ (AWS, Azure, GCP, Oracle Cloud) adoption journey 🗺
1️⃣ Step: Check on Team Alignment with cloud fundamentals ✔️ Every team member should have a basic understand of how specific cloud works ✔️ Portfolio of candidate workloads should be available to all team members to be used during strategic, release planning and completion of technical tasks ✔️ The technical strategy should include clarity on which levels of the hosting hierarchy will be used and what those terms mean in our business ✔️ A naming and tagging standard should be established, maintained, and enforced to guide implementation and resource organization ✔️ The hosting hierarchy should be reflected in a resource organization design (account or subscription design) ✔️ Align cloud capabilities, teams, and RACI structure to the fundamental concepts above
As an addition, what would you add into first checklist ? 🤔
