Register for our next Geek Sync, Azure Cloud & You: First Steps for the DBA, on Wednesday August 7 @ 11AM CT, with host John Morehouse.
In this session, we'll cover some basic knowledge and terminology of Azure as well as how easy it is to incorporate Azure into your environment. We will stand up a new Azure virtual machine as well as a setup SQL DB. You will see how easy it is to accomplish this. This new-found knowledge will help propel your career into the new landscape.
