Goodbye MVA and welcome “LEARN”

If you’re a technical person who loves Microsoft technology then you must have spend time on MVA. Microsoft Virtual Academy is one of my favorite place which I spend to learn about Microsoft technology. Starting from basic all the way to level 300 content is there plus do your own knowledge validation and exams. That bean said Microsoft has decided to close the learning site and come with new learning platform. Before I jump into that if you’re a MVA fan then you still have time to complete your pending learning and exams until end of January 2019. Best is visit the MVA site and complete your pending tasks Smile

So now you’re aware the future awaits for the MVA what that means to you with Microsoft Learn? What is Microsoft Learn?

Microsoft Learn is interactive learning environment that includes short step-by-step tutorials (I can see more in Azure Smile), interactive coding/scripting environments, and task-based achievements that help you advance your technical cloud skills. I like new idea but again change is not welcome by everyone at first glance. Best is you give a try and see how it matters to you.

I like the idea of role based training. Along with rapid changes in cloud technology it would be pretty difficult task to keep up with all the technology updates. Ideal would be to have small chunks and learn them. Even Microsoft Azure classroom training has to go through in that path in order to teach for students Smile

In case if you’re missing advance concepts training then Microsoft has provided external training partners web links for you to refer. Such learning partners are LinkedIn & Pluralsight.

I do hope Microsoft will not forget IT users who are interested in Windows Server, System Center technology. Fingers crossed for that.

Until that time arrives best is to start with “Azure Fundamentals” training Smile
