New chapters on the Microsoft identity & Graph workloads released!

Today I’m excited to share with you that true to my commitment, I’ve published two more chapters to my MS-600 Exam Prep - Building apps with Microsoft 365 Core Services course !

This sprint was a little challenging… in the midst of recording one of my lights fell and cut open my forehead. See if you can tell between which two lessons this happened! But this actually worked to your advantage if you can believe it!

I was fearful a knot would develop which would impact my recording plans. So, after cleaning up the light & my forehead, I doubled down and got the rest of the content recorded before the day was over.

I’m glad I did… the next morning it wasn’t pretty.

So, this marks the completion of my sprint 2 milestone.

New chapters added to the course today

The two chapters that are now available to all current and new subscribers are:

Microsoft identity

Microsoft identity (Entra ID)

In this chapter, the focus is on the workload Microsoft identity. But that’s a bit misleading in my opinion. I think you’ll agree and understanding why will help you efficiently prepare for the exam.

I cover topics like OAuth2 authentication protocols, apps, service principals, different types of tokens, supported scenarios, SDKs you need to know & some question pitfalls a developer unfamiliar with the details of how the exam was created may fall into.

Microsoft Graph

Microsoft Graph

In this chapter, the focus is on the workload Microsoft Graph. Microsoft Graph is a huge topic as it’s just an API. Thankfully, the MS-600 exam’s scope is limited to specific aspects of Microsoft Graph.

I cover topics around patterns & practices Microsoft considers so important, they’re included in the questions on the exam. This includes how to best optimize your queries, how to identify and address when your requests are throttled - including how to avoid throttling using patterns like change notifications (aka: webhooks) and track changes (aka: delta query). I also cover the three main endpoints you’ll be tested on the exam.

Sticking with my commitment

When I launched this course late last year, I committed to completing it by the end of February 2021. This included releasing two more chapters by the end of January.

Next up are the two chapters on SharePoint and Microsoft Teams! I’m on track to keep my commitment to you - the last two chapters will be out before the end of February.
