Course: AZ-220: Microsoft Azure IoT Developer
Course Duration: 4 days
Course Fee: Contact Us
Training Mode: Online/Classroom

The course is intended for solution developers/engineers who are or will be responsible for implementing an IoT solution using Azure IoT services. It would also be suitable for cloud solution architects who are interested in honing their implementation skills with the latest technologies.

Prerequisites for taking this course are:

Software Development Experience: Software development experience is a prerequisite for this course, but no specific software language is required, and the experience does not need to be at a professional level.
Data Processing Experience: General understanding of data storage and data processing is a recommended but not required.
Cloud Solution Awareness: Students should have a basic understanding of PaaS, SaaS, and IaaS implementations. Microsoft Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900), or equivalent skills, is recommended.

Course description:
This course provides students with the skills and knowledge required to successfully create and maintain the cloud and edge portions of an Azure IoT solution. The course includes full coverage of the core Azure IoT services such as IoT Hub, Device Provisioning Services, Azure Stream Analytics, Time Series Insights, and more. In addition to the focus on Azure PaaS services, the course includes sections on IoT Edge, device management, monitoring and troubleshooting, security concerns, and Azure IoT Central.

The course material includes a combination of instructor-led presentation and discussion along with hands-on lab activities
