Course Introduction


These two videos will introduce you to Microsoft Azure. You will learn what it is, and look into some of its core elements. Please note that the host will ask you to watch further videos at the end of the second video, for this course, you won't need to watch any further videos.


Welcome to Overview of Azure Services. My name's Guy Hummel and I'm a Microsoft-certified Azure Expert. If you have any questions, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn and send me a message, or send an email to support@cloudacademy.com.

This course is an introduction to Microsoft Azure. It'll give you a broad overview of the types of services available in Azure without going too deeply into any of them.

This course is intended for anyone who'd like to learn more about Azure, so you don't need to have any experience with it before taking this course. It would be helpful to have some general technical knowledge though because I don't explain basic terms like file server or operating system.

The best way to learn is by doing, so I recommend that you try performing these tasks yourself on your own Azure account. If you don't already have one, then you can create a free trial account.

To save you the trouble of typing in the URLs and commands shown in this course, I've put them in a readme file in a GitHub repository. You can find a link to the repository at the bottom of the Overview tab below this video.

By the end of this course, you should be able to describe some of the Azure services available in various categories, use the Azure Portal, and use the Azure command line. We'd love to get your feedback on this course, so please give it a rating when you're finished.

Now, if you're ready to learn about what you can do with Microsoft Azure, then let's get started.
