The Azure Platform is huge, and it connects all things great and small in the IT Universe.
Still there's a distinction on where IT Pro's need to know things and Devs need to know things.
This course focuses on the things every IT Pro needs to know (and more) when connecting, and setting up Azure resources and Infrastructure.
We focus in this course mainly on IaaS, but nevertheless we also create an understanding of how Azure works, why IT Pro's need to know the dev stuff too and we even talk about Continuous Integration and DevOps.
