Microsoft Zero To Hero Community

I gave a presentation at this sweet learning community on LinkedIn Learning called “Microsoft Zero to Hero Community”. Please take a look at this community, and if you are an Azure Learner – you could joint the community and follow them to share in all the learning they provide! <3

A while ago I started to just line up slides with random Azure advice. Over time the list of slides grew, and so I thought; “would anyone really want to hear a random rambling session by me where I just dispense a stream of things I have learned about Azure over the years?” Turns out the answer is “yes that is really useful”! So I sorted my slides and now have it as an ever growing set of anectdotal Azure knowledge.

I think Baz Luhrmann put it best: “Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia: Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts, and recycling it for more than it’s worth.”

For what it’s worth, it seems folks are keen to hear about Azure since the days it was called “Windows”. The original name for Azure… well the code name was Red Dog but that’s another story. The original name was “Windows Azure”.
