A free, self-paced course by Microsoft gives you the chance to expand your knowledge of Azure Cosmos DB as well as earning a certification.
Azure CosmosDB is Microsoft's mutli-model distributed database for supporting workloads at scale. As we examined in "Azure CosmosDB for PostgreSQL Reaches General Availability", by adding support for PostgreSQL CosmosDB has broken free of the NoSQl model and spanned over to the Relational. This move has rendered Azure the first cloud provider to offer its own single database service that supports both relational and NoSQL workloads from PostgreSQL, MongoDB, and Apache Cassandra.
Since the multifaceted CosmosDB is accessible by multiple APIs, it is important to understand how to go about them. For that reason and to cater for its NoSQL aspect, Microsoft has released The Azure Cosmos DB Developer Cloud Skills Challenge where in about 20 hours you’ll learn how to build, scale, and optimize modern applications on Azure Cosmos. Completing the Challenge will also prepare you for DP-420 "Designing and Implementing Cloud-Native Applications Using Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB" certification. You’ll also receive 50% off certification testing if you complete the challenge within 30 days.
So what will you learn in those 20 hours?
You will need to register for using your Microsoft Learn profile. Afterwards you'll be able to check all the modules of the Challenge in your Learn profile.
All in all, the Challenge offers a first class opportunity to get to know both the Cosmos database as well as the Azure platform. And if you like it that much you can also try to become certified.
