Want to get started with “the Cloud” but don’t know where to begin?

Microsoft just announced free resources to help IT pros get started and build their careers in the cloud.

Check out these two new awesome resources:

With the IT Pro Cloud Essentials, you get free Azure credits, a free Pluralsight subscription, free certification exam vouchers, and even extended trials of EMS and O365!

But what if you’re already in IT, and just want to move into cloud technologies? Check out the Microsoft IT Pro Career Center. This tool provides you with a cloud career path, and guided curriculum to learn.

Personally, I really love the IT Pro Career Center tool. Especially the career mapping, where it guides you with primary and secondary skills to learn, with a wide variety of information sources like the Microsoft Virtual Academy videos, free eBooks, even links to documentation, blogs, and guided labs!

Here’s an example of a career path for a Cloud Architect:
