Dan Stolts and I have been working on an Azure Exam Jumpstart one day prep class for exam 70-534: Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions. This event has been given twice so far and it has been obvious that, for many, a solid base understanding of Azure is very helpful before the class. With that in mind, we have created a three part video series for you watch before the Azure Jumpstart.
