With cloud computing, it's very easy to create resources and grow your services. It only takes a click of a few buttons to add more virtual machines to your environment. But these virtual machines and other resources cost money. Sometimes thousands of dollars per month. At the end of the month, you see the big bill. But do you really understand where the money went?
In this course, we will look at the following topics:
Estimate costs before you create the services
Monitor costs with budgets, alerts and cost analysis
Review the charges on your invoice
Extract billing and cost data using the consumption API
Utilize Enterprise Agreement (EA) resources
Proactively configuring your account to avoid surprises

Hi there, my name is Scott Duffy. And I love making complex technical topics easy to understand.
This has been the basis of my entire career – as a developer, as a development manager, as a software architect – over the past 20 years. I spend half my time in the world of business, explaining complex technical topics to business owners and stakeholders so that they can understand and agree with my approach to solving their business problems with technical solutions. And the other half with developers, explaining the business reasons behind decisions and ensuring that any decisions made on the technical side don't restrict the business in unexpected ways.
And I'm here on Udemy to teach what I know in an approachable way. I started teaching courses in 2014, and have taught over 800,000 students. I am grateful every day for being able to connect with so many students in almost every country around the world.
I'm a certified Enterprise Architect and certified cloud architect. I have been developing with Microsoft technologies for 20 years, starting with Classic ASP, and all the versions of .NET. We now live in the cloud era, with Microsoft Azure being prevalent in most large enterprises. I'm certified as an Azure Architect and Developer too. As well as AWS Solution Architect Associate (SAA).
