Day[30/100] #100DaysOfCloud – Jonnychipz – Microsoft Ignite Data and AI Challenge

It’s the final day of Microsoft Ignite today, I was up bright and early to finish off a few bits of work and thought I would finish off the Learnings of the Data & AI Cloud Skills Challenge as part of Ignite!

As part of this virtual experience, Microsoft have set up the Cloud Skills Challenge https://csc.docs.microsoft.com/ignite/registration

So the Data & AI Challenge is a selection of 6 modules covering, you guessed it, some of the basics around Data and AI services to access the challenge click here.

Cloud Skills Challenge – Data & AI

This challenge has 6 modules as follows:

Deploy SQL Server in a virtual machine

Deploy Azure SQL Database

Deploy MariaDB, MySQL, and PostgreSQL on Azure

Protect data in-transit and at rest

Configure SQL Server resources for optimal performance

Explore performance-based design

After completing these modules I thought that the content was great and offers a very high level overview of some of the basic data services offered in Azure, together with some of the features surrounding each, like Auto Backups and funcitonality. Encryption at rest and also table data masking is discussed.

I personally thought that there wasn’t a lot on AI in these modules, if you are looking for more AI specific modules I would suggest the learning modules under the Getting started with AI on Azure learning path: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/learn/paths/get-started-with-artificial-intelligence-on-azure/ this gives a great introduction to the AI services on Azure.

Happy Learning!
