BUILD & IGNITE Know It. Prove It. Tech Challenge Tour

I recently blogged about my personal experiences with the first “Know it. Prove it.” challenge that ran through the month of February 2015. The “Know it. Prove it.” challenge is back! This time it’s bigger and better than ever. The new challenge is a companion to both the Build and Ignite Conferences with 11 amazing tracks for both Developers and IT Professionals. Also, just like the first round, this set of challenges are completely Free!

Geared towards Developers, this includes tracks focusing on: Azure, Office, Database, App Platform, Developer Tools.
Ignite IT Professional challenge
Geared towards IT Professionals, this includes tracks focusing on: Cloud, Big Data, Mobility, Security and Compliance, Unified Communications, Productivity and Collaboration.
What do the challenges consist of?
Each challenge consists of free, amazing training courses hosted on the Microsoft Virtual Academy. These are some amazing courses, it’s hard to believe their free. In addition to the training courses, some of the challenges include links to free eBooks from Microsoft Press.
The challenges range is approximately 15 hours to 30 hours of video training content. So if you take on 30 minutes to 1 hour a day, you’ll finish a single challenge in a month. Surely, you can commit just 1 hour a day for a month. Right?
