Azure SQL Essentials Online Training

In this entry-level software development skills training, Knox Hutchinson helps you get started with the Azure SQL data platform.

The Azure SQL platform is one of the most robust offerings in all of Azure. Microsoft has made it relatively easy to start using Azure SQL. When you deploy a logical SQL Server, there is essentially no administration of the SQL Server other than user accounts, so you can focus on the important stuff — the data.

After completing this software development training, you'll know how to use the Azure Data Studio, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Azure Data Factory, and Azure analysis services.

For anyone who leads an IT team, this software development training can be used to onboard new cloud developers, curated into individual or team training plans, or act as a software development reference resource.
