Does anyone know of any way to try out Microsoft Azure and play with it for testing / learning purposes? My work is starting to get onboard with it and we will soon be moving a lot of our infrastructure over to it and I'd like to get a head of the curve and play with it a bit.
I learn the best when I'm implementing stuff, I've never had a lot of luck reading books and doing courses, but if I could go move all my own home network infrastructure over to Azure just to play with it I would probably be able to learn a lot.
Does Microsoft offer anything like that? E.g. some free licenses that can be used for personal use or learning purposes, maybe through your employer?
