Here are the skills that the exam AZ-300 measures –

  • Deploy and configure infrastructure (25-30%)
  • Implement workloads and security (20-25%)
  • Create and deploy apps (5-10%)
  • Implement authentication and secure data (5-10%)
  • Develop for the cloud and for Azure storage (20-25%)

Rather than mapping each of the skills mentioned above, I am going to list the different concepts that a candidate should be aware of and preferably, should have hands-on experience as well. I believe this will simplify the preparation path for the candidates who are looking forward to earn this certification.
