100 Days of Cloud

I started the 100 Days of Cloud challenge in August 2021 as a way to expand my Cloud Skillset across Multi-Cloud environments. I have multiple Microsoft Certifications, and have already achieved the following:

  • AZ-104: Azure Administrator Associate
  • AZ-140: Azure Virtual Desktop Specialty
  • AZ-204: Azure Developer Associate (achieved March 2022)
  • AZ-800: Administering Windows Server Hybrid Core Infrastructure (achieved January 2022)
  • SC-300: Identity and Access Administrator Associate
  • MCSE Core Infrastructure – Server 2016
  • Juniper Networks – JNCIA-JUNOS

At the end of this challenge, I’d like to:

  • Have the knowledge to create services across multiple cloud providers
  • Be comfortable identifying and troubleshooting services across multiple providers
  • Be comfortable identifying the best cloud service offering for a particular problem
  • Understand Serverless Functions and their usage
  • Become more comfortable in a programming language
  • Gain knowledge of Ansible and Terraform

This is the Full Index for my 100 Days of Cloud Journey, I’ll be using this to keep track of all the Posts and Technologies that I’ll be using, and updating with new links as new posts are released!
