How can I learn MS Azure? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User647004695 posted

    Hello,

    I am a .NET developer. I have total 5+ years experience in .NET and 2+ experience in BizTalk server 2010. Now, I want to move on MS Azure. However, I don't have any idea about MS Azure.

    Can anyone please suggest me that should I move to MS Azure or should I enhance my knowledge in BizTalk server. I heard that cloud is the future. So, please guide me as I am confused.

    Thanks,
    Sam.

    Hi,

    it's a nice book but you'll notice that the world has moved on since it appeared. Usually the most up to date information is on the Azure website itself with good overviews, tutorials, code samples, ...

    In your case likely https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/biztalk-services/ is a nice place to start.

    Grz, Kris.

    Hi,

    and welcome to the ASP.NET forums.

    I don't have any idea about MS Azure

    The best way to get a grip on it is to take a look at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/. There select products in the menu and navigate over all the services it provides. Be warned, there's a LOT of stuff.

    should I move to MS Azure or should I enhance my knowledge in BizTalk server

    Learn both. If you're into Biztalk be sure to also study the equivalent services Microsoft offers on Azure. More and more clients are starting to make use of Azure/Cloud either in full or in hybrid mode (on premises and part on Azure).

    Grz, Kris.

    Thank you Kris for the reply.

    You are right as there is a LOT of STUFF. Due to this, I am not be able to decide a starting point. Is there any way to learn step by step?

    My Azure Fear - If I learn Azure, I have to learn about Networking, Hardware, Virtual Machines, Storage etc. Am I right ?

    Yeah, MS offers BizTalk azure services.

    Hi,

    Networking, Hardware, Virtual Machines, Storage etc. Am I right

    Storage I would recommend as it's also one of the oldest services available on Azure. VM could also be of your benefit but be sure to check out Web Apps and bizztalk services / service bus. Likely it's best to start with those services that you already know now and built on top of that to extend your Azure knowledge. It's a fast pacing world and sometimes you invest time in something while it might not be there anymore in a year.

    Grz, Kris.
