Microsoft Learn

Microsoft Learn was introduced at Ignite 2018 as a free learning platform for a lot of different Microsoft technologies, not just Azure. Microsoft Learn provides you with various learning paths depending on your job role or the skills you are looking for. Most of the learning paths give you a hands-on learning opportunity so that you can develop practical skills through interactive training. And it is free! You get instant in-browser access to Microsoft tools and modules, no credit card required.

Azure hands-on experience

There is nothing better than hands-on experience, so get started with a free Azure account. Your Azure free account includes a limited quantity of free services for 12 months. Within these limits, you have the flexibility to use free services in various configurations to meet your needs. To learn more, see the Azure free account FAQ

edX | Free Azure Online Courses

edX courses, taught by Microsoft experts, let you learn through hands-on experience with broad reach, cutting-edge technologies in areas including Azure cloud services, mobile development, and data sciences. Learn about Azure cloud computing solutions with free courses from Microsoft. Free online classes in Azure storage, databases, security, networks and more. Searching the edX course catalog for ” azure results in just fewer than 60 current and archived courses based on Azure.

Channel 9

Channel 9 is a community site for Microsoft customers created in 2004. Since 2004, Channel 9 has been a go-to place for Microsoft customers to view videos and webcasts, discuss issues, problems, and emerging technology in the forums and generally learn about Microsoft technologies.

Become Microsoft Azure Certified

Another great option to learn and verify your skills is to take Microsoft Azure certification exams. Taking the new role-based Microsoft certification exams will help you to find the right topics and structure to learn, depending on your current or future job role you are looking for. If you are just getting started with Azure, have a look at the Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900) exam.

I hope these resources give you a great summary of how you can start learning Azure in 2020.
