Azure Essentials - Free Training

Don`t know what is Azure, or want to learn more about Azure and Cloud? Just choose a topic and use the curated set of demo videos, hands-on labs, and product trials to learn about and try Azure at your own pace. Be sure to also check out the  Azure learning paths, and Azure certification.

Thank you all for the great interest and feedback on Azure Essentials. 


The response to the program has been overwhelming, and to help you learn more we`ve just upgraded Azure Essentials by adding new topics, implementing a progress tracker, and making the content available before you have to log in :)


You can see my post on the program news or simply go to and enjoy the new topics.

Hey Lance, for Active Directory the Managing Identity on Azure Essentials is a great starting point. For SQL Server this page may help you get started :)
