Below you will find a list of what is going to be tested in the new AZ-300 Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies exam and a link to a resource that I think will help you learn and pass the exam. It is a work in progress at the moment and I will keep updating it. If you do find a link that is not working, or I have linked to the wrong resource. Please let me know. Also if you would like to help fill in the blanks please leave a comment below.

At Microsoft Ignite, they had a session on this Exam. It is worth the watch.

Iā€™m Richard Hooper aka Pixel Robots. I started this blog in 2016 for a couple reasons. The first reason was basically just a place for me to store my step by step guides, troubleshooting guides and just plain ideas about being a sysadmin. The second reason was to share what I have learned and found out with other people like me. Hopefully, you can find something useful on the site.

Great resources!!

Thank you very much!!

    Pixel Robots. · September 27, 2018 at 7:47 am

    Thanks for the kind words. Let us know if you know any links that are missing.

Nitin R. Goyal · September 27, 2018 at 9:35 pm

Hi Richard, In today’s world who does all so much for others to learn from all what you have created that too for free. Thanks much for all your time and energy you have spent creating these resources and sharing with us for our learning.

I’m planning to learn more about azure technology as I’m into SAP administration since 12+ years and now want to make sure I’m on top of the latest technology/ platform

Regards
Nitin R. Goyal

    Pixel Robots. · September 27, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    Hey Nitin, thanks for the kind words. I am glad that the posts are helping people.

    12+ years with sap! That’s some good going. Azure is a lot of fun and always being improved, it’s fun to keep up with it all.

    Lets us know how your Azure journey goes and reach out of you ever need to talk about anything!

    Thanks again

    Richard

      Amit · September 29, 2018 at 7:37 am

      Hi Richard thank you so much as i am also following your blog continuously after lots of search i found your blog simple and useful…

        Pixel Robots. · September 29, 2018 at 7:39 am

        Hey Amit, thanks for the kind words. It’s nice to hear. I am happy it’s helping.

Invictuz · September 29, 2018 at 5:23 am

At first i figured this was going to be another scam / sales site for test dumps.
Wow what a great site this turned out to be…probably the first legitimate study resource i have found online.
Thank you for the long hours spent collecting, organizing and posting the info for the Azure AZ300 exam!

    Pixel Robots. · September 29, 2018 at 7:37 am

    Thanks for the kind words.

Sandip · October 1, 2018 at 10:52 am

Great Very Useful

Ram · October 2, 2018 at 6:19 pm

Thanks for the great effort to collect and share the resources with everyone. But unfortunately google doesnt list this page right on top, I had to scroll a couple of pages to get here. May be its a treasure šŸ™‚

    Pixel Robots. · October 2, 2018 at 6:46 pm

    Thanks for the kind words.

      Ram · October 3, 2018 at 1:18 am

      WC. One more question, I do not have any experience with Azure, but only with .NET. Can I still have a crack at this exam by just knowing the concepts?? How hard will be the learning curve??

        Pixel Robots. · October 3, 2018 at 8:11 am

        If I was you and did not have much experience with Azure I would have a look at https://microsoft.com/learn and the Azure fundamentals course they have. It’s free. Then as you seem to be a Developer I would look at doing the new Azure Developer certification. It consists of two exams the AZ-200 and AZ-201. the Microsoft Learn site should also have some course to help with that too.

        I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Vincent · October 5, 2018 at 9:29 pm

Hi Richard, thanks for this. Could you have another article for the az-301 as well please?

    Pixel Robots. · October 5, 2018 at 9:48 pm

    I am working on it. I will try and get it up this weekend or early next week. Keep an eye out for it.

      Vincent · October 7, 2018 at 1:03 pm

      Perfect. Thank you!

Sudeep · October 23, 2018 at 9:29 pm

This was an excellent effort. Thank you for taking the time and effort to pull this together.

I have couple of comments. Will post them one by one as I go through.
http://bit.ly/2y0rVad link seems to be old. The command shown in the video is no longer correct. I think the URL https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-resource-manager/resource-group-template-deploy or any other sub URLs in that section should be used instead of the video

    Pixel Robots. · October 23, 2018 at 9:32 pm

    Thanks. I will get this link updated.

Kode · November 16, 2018 at 1:11 am

Hello Pixel
Thanks a lot for putting this together. It will be of great help in my preparation for the AZ-300 exam.
I’ve noticed a small typo in the below section. The percentage range should read 25-30%. You have it as 25-13%
Deploy and Configure Infrastructure (25-13%)

    Pixel Robots. · November 16, 2018 at 12:46 pm

    Thanks. That’s been fixed.

krishna · December 3, 2018 at 1:18 pm

Hi Richard are you also working on uploading the AZ301 Content as well that would be very helpful.

    Pixel Robots. · December 3, 2018 at 2:10 pm

    Yes, I am slowly trying to update both the az-300 and az-301.

      krishna · December 3, 2018 at 3:34 pm

      thank you very much.looking forward.

Harj · December 14, 2018 at 8:49 pm
