Below you will find a list of what is going to be tested in the new AZ-301 Microsoft Azure Architect Design 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.
