One of the most difficult things, when you need to find a job, is the interviews. Honestly, I prefer not saying difficult, but instead troublesome and stressful.
We normally don’t know what to expect and we either lose the motivation to prepare for it, or we get swept away into an ocean of information and waste so much energy and time on it.
But, some nice and thoughtful people make resources and guides available, to help people get through these interviews. And today, I will talk about the Microsoft Azure interview questions by Kunal and Vikram, who made a whole guide to help people ace their job interviews and stand out from their pairs.
Who is Kunal Chandratre and Vikram Pendse and why are they so popular?
Kunal Chandratre and Vikram Pendse are known for being Microsoft MVPs for years. These two gentlemen have a very close relationship with a lot of Microsoft communities across India, and some customers and companies, which makes them well familiar with a lot of struggles occurring.
They have assisted so many job interviews and observed that a lot give very high-level details about some concepts of Azure, making them wonder if they don’t know the actual subjects of Azure, or if the information is difficult to find.
And they saw that many did a lot of research, but because of the lack of knowing how to get the information, they lost big opportunities.
They got quite famous when they decided to release a book that will help both experienced and inexperienced developers to get their jobs on the first interview, and ace it effectively and efficiently.
And they highlighted that this book is in no way a guide to any Microsoft Certification on Azure, but a guide and resource to ace technical interviews on the matter.
What is the structure of the book and what does it contain?
The authors of this book have thought a lot before choosing the right structure, so they can make it easier for the reader to find the right information. The one they choose is to structure it by topics.
That made reading the book easier, as each topic has also some subtopics that have no relation to other things. And also for each topic, they have put together a set of questions mostly asked all the time.
This is beneficial as it gets the reader accustomed to these type of questions and help them have a good start!
Also what is great is each question is followed by a short answer right to the point, to not get you too dragged and confused. And after that, which makes this guide unique, is a “Deep Dive” section, which is an extended explanation of the question and the answer.
This is great, because it might help you understand the flow of the interview, and even be able to predict the next questions and be more prepared.
Who can benefit from the Microsoft Azure Interview Questions book?
To make it brief, this book is for anyone getting prepared to have job interviews and don’t know where to start, especially in Microsoft Azure-related jobs.
Any IT professionals and developers searching for job opportunities have to at least give this book a look!
I would also like to add, even if the job you are searching for is not related to Microsoft Azure, you can use this book just to get an idea about how job interviews usually happen and what they expect you to know. This can help you organize yourself and get rid of unimportant resources.
How can this book help you prepare for an Azure interview?
We’ve all been in a situation where we apply for job opportunities and get the call for an interview, but we don’t know what to do next. This book is great as it gives a guide and a lead to what you should know and prepare for.
Again this is not a book to rely on to get a certification but to prepare you for a technical interview in relation to Microsoft Azure. Because, when you go and prepare for it, you only receive high-level knowledge, but the interviewer is not looking for that.
So to be brief, this book is a guide for you to know the questions expected in the interview and the answer to them, while also learning some more details on the field that might save you from imperceptible questions.

What are the benefits, and advantages of cloud computing?
Scalability - Agility - High Availability - Pay as you go - Moving from Capex to Opex - Fault Tolerance - High Response Time - High Bandwidth - Low Latency
What is Microsoft Azure Cloud computing is the concept and this concept has been implemented by many companies.
For example, Amazon implemented it and named their product Amazon EC2 or Amazon web services, Google call it Google App Engine, and so on.
Along similar lines, Microsoft also created a product based on the cloud computing concept and it is called “Microsoft Azure”. So MS Azure provides a platform with cloud computing capabilities so that you can get all the benefits of cloud computing.
