Learn what software, skills, and subscriptions are necessary to follow along with this course.
- [Instructor] If you plan to follow along with the course, you'll need to have an active Azure subscription. You'll find details about how to sign up for a subscription and the various subscription levels in my Azure Big Picture course. If you want to sign up immediately check out the Microsoft Azure Site. Here I've done a search for Azure sign up, and this first link, you click there and you can sign up for your free Azure account. Next, you need to have the Azure Workload installed for Visual Studio. The other workload start the Visual Studio installer, go to the Workload section and make sure that you have a check-mark here for Azure development. This course focuses on the Azure Tooling and Visual Studio. While there are code samples be aware that we will not be building a finished application. Also, I assume that you are familiar with the Azure concept shown. For example, we'll take a look at how to connect to an Azure SQL Server Database but this course doesn't show how to create or manage the database in Azure. Remember, we are exploring the tools, not Azure itself. To dig into the details about the big world of Azure, check out our other courses.
