One thought on “Useful Resources

  1. Hi Nick,

    For a total beginner with a lack of knowledge of cloud computing and programming, which course would you recommend me to take first out of 70-532. 70-533 and 70-534.

    I want to learn Azure so I can have a change in career. I am comfortable in building computers and fixing software and hardware problems but programming and cloud computing is new to me.

    Thanks in advance.
