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 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.
My Main ReadMe Page is all set up with a bit about me!

Please Watch/Star my repo and feel free to comment of contribute to anything I push! I really look forward to hearing from anyone who is going to jump on the journey around the same time as me! Lets see where I get to in 100 days!
I would encourage others to jump on this journey, I’m not sure that I will be able to commit every day for 100 days, but as long as I can complete 100 days that will be great!
