How to Build Azure

The latest addition to BuildAzure.com is the all new “How to Build Azure” guides! This is a new section of BuildAzure.com that hosts “How to” style guides to help you be more productive working in the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Here’s a few of the latest guides in the How to Build Azure archive:

The new “Guide” content type in BuildAzure.com is designed to provide “How to” or “Lab” style guides on how to do things in the Microsoft Azure cloud. Rather than “lab guides” that are step-by-step learning resources, How to Build Azure is meant to help you be more productive in your day-to-day job. How to Build Azure is a productivity booster resource to go along with all the Articles posted on the site; from certifications to architecture, developer, devops, and beyond. These guides can be found in the “Guides” header menu item of BuildAzure.com, and displayed in the sidebar of the website.
