I’m really excited to share a new module that I developed by working with the Microsoft Learn Team: “Introduction to Azure for students.” As students, we often encounter numerous tech challenges, from managing projects and assignments to exploring new fields like AI and data science. This module is designed to help you tackle these challenges head-on by diving into the fascinating world of cloud computing with Azure.





Why Cloud Computing?


Cloud computing might sound complex, but it’s simpler than you think. Imagine it as a giant library where you can borrow books whenever you need them, without the hassle of buying or storing them. Similarly, cloud computing lets you use computing resources whenever you need them, without owning or maintaining the hardware and software. It’s flexible, easy, and often more affordable.
