What is Azure Academy?

Azure Academy offers classroom training on Azure for professional web developers, available as public courses or as corporate on-site training across Canada. We are not related to Microsoft.

Are you offering virtual classes as well?

Yes, we do offer virtual classes. You get the same training experience and the same interaction with the trainer.

What do I need to attend a virtual class?

We use the widely popular Zoom conferencing tool. Beside the course setup on your laptop, you will need a second screen.

  • Option 1: Connect an external monitor to your computer/laptop so you can practice using the main screen and watch the course on the second screen.
  • Option 2 : Use a second computer or a tablet (iPad, Android) to watch the course.

For private corporate classes, we can also use Microsoft Teams.

We heard that Zoom is unsecure

Zoom has fixed it's security issues and we are using the best practices like forcing entry through the lobby, using a password and using North American data centres only.

Can we customize the content?

No, public classes strictly follow the courses outlines but if possible, we can definitely tailor the content for corporate on-site training to fit your team's preferences and expectations.

Is the Azure cost included?

No, you need to provide your own Azure account and the Azure services that you'll use during the course will be charged to your account.

What do you mean by "live coding"?

(Learn + Try) * Repeat. The trainer will explain a topic and quickly switch to a live coding exercise that each participant will also do at the same time. This means shorter but more often periods of labs.

What do participants get?

You get the training material in PDF files, the source code used in the course and a certificate of completion.

Can I use the Azure credits included in my MSDN account?

Absolutely! If you have an MSDN subscription, you do have Azure monthly credits that you can use to learn Azure.

I don't have an MSDN account, can I get free Azure credits?

Absolutely! When you create an Azure account for the first time, you get $200 of free Azure credits to spend within 30 days.

What if I don't have a laptop?

We do not provide laptops so you need to bring your own.

Is it OK to bring a MAC or a PC?

Consult each course's description for specific requirements.

What is the required laptop setup?

Consult each course's description for specific setups.

Can we host this course at our office?

Of course! If you provide a room with WiFi, projector/TV and classroom setup (a conference room is OK). Contact us to schedule a session now! Minimum 6 participants (3 in the Montreal area).

Need to make travel plans?

If you need to make travel plans to attend a public course, we ask you to contact us prior to do that. Once the course has been confirmed (enough participants), we will contact you so you can organize your travel. This way, you don't get stuck with a plane ticket if a course is cancelled.
