Lessons

This course is designed for technology professionals who architect the technology solutions that support the changing requirements due to adoption of cloud computing, and help organizations leverage the opportunities that cloud is creating. Solution architects need to understand the impact that cloud is having on business and information architecture, application design, data management, and security architecture-and be very familiar with the topology and eco-systems that are being created as a result of increasing adoption of cloud technologies and operating models.

This course is designed for senior technology professionals who are architecting and designing the future generation of technology solutions. The course materials include comprehensive reference materials that help to continue your educational experience after the course. The course prepares you for the Professional Cloud Solutions Architect certification (PCSA) exam provided by the Cloud Credential Council. The PCSA is endorsed, recognized and supported by several key technology vendors and standards bodies. The content for this course, as well as the PCSA certification is based on the cloud standards developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
