New developers at Tailwind Traders have a saying with regards to learning our technology platform: "it's like drinking from a firehose." Indeed, learning all of the services that we use with Microsoft Azure can be overwhelming - especially if you're unfamiliar with Azure and/or the cloud in general.
In this module we'll start at the very beginning, introducing Azure and the core concepts that are the foundation of our cloud platform. We'll start with a discussion of what cloud computing is and what Azure can offer you and your team. We'll then take a look at basic services and features, setting up an account and subscription along the way. We'll then tour the Azure Portal and do a quick overview of the Resources available and what they do from a high level.
