Hi and welcome to this course. I’m super excited to be here with you teaching you all about Azure. Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing service created by Microsoft for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through Microsoft-managed data centers. The advantage with Azure is that everything is cloud based, no costly hardware to buy, provision or install. First off a quick introduction about myself and why you should learn from me and then also I want to quickly cover what you’re going to learn on this course
My name is Ram and I’ve been in the IT industry for more than 15 years. But even more than that, I’m the author of a few different courses in Udemy and all of which are tailored towards beginners. I have a particular interest in covering the basics in a way that people can easily understand and put into action immediately. And hence I believe you have come to the right place.
This course is meant to be the ultimate bootcamp in learning about the basics of Azure. No advanced topics, no unnecessary drivel, just the solid basics to get you off on the right footing. We’ll cover all the free services that come with Azure, i.e. 8 services that are free for 12 months and about 25 services that are always free. The advantage with this approach is that you don’t have to spend anything to learn about Azure.
Each service is first explained and then followed up with a quick hands-on demo. You can either go through the course sequentially or use it as a reference, i.e. go directly to the service you want to learn about. Each service has been covered as independently as possible so that you can learn about each service without knowing about other services.
The recommended way to learn this course though is to take your time between lectures, practice what you learnt in the previous lesson and then move onto the next lecture. This is my preferred method of learning whenever I’m tackling a new subject, but off course each person learns in a different way and I encourage you to follow the method that works best for you.
With that short introduction, I’m ready and excited to take you in the exciting world of Azure. Are you ready? Let’s go!
