- Interactive overview of Azure Datacenter – a bit too much marketing but you can find number of valuable points around building datacenter
- If you’d like to get certified on Office 365 or/and Azure – the details of certification exams required can be found here
- Significant number of free interactive classes can be found here
- Personally I took “Microsoft Azure for AWS Experts” (AZURE213x) which has awesome 5 series videos that can be accessed directly from MS Blog
- There is a lot of paid classes offered however "99995MOD: First Look Clinic: Microsoft Azure (On Demand)" is offered for free and a little bit above Level 100 (Sometime 200-300) which makes it really useful – allow around 8 hours to complete it.
- I started looking at Office 365 – which seems to be the most widely implemented part of Azure – there is number of video training here (a bit outdated but still relevant) on Virtual Academy (but the instructors are brilliant!)
- Also for Enterprises – you can try Office 365for free
- Azure offers $250 Credit, however you have 30 days to spend it….

Learning Azure and Office 365
Looking at the customer base demand in terms what public cloud seems to be the more popular – it becomes obvious that Microsoft Enterprise Agreement include a lot of cloud credits and allow straightforward decision on public cloud technology to be used by Microsoft's customers base.
Most time of the last week and a little bit this week I was getting up to speed with Microsoft Public Cloud Offerings.
Here is the summary of the resources I used so far:
Hopefully it’s helpful list of resources. On another note I’m continue enjoying summer and working part time on short-term contract as a Principal Security Consultant for one of Vancouver local businesses. I expect it will help me with sharpening my Python scripting skills as SEIM, IDS/IPS and other technologies that I’ve not touched recently.
