Free Azure Training, YES!
Microsoft and Pluralsight have an agreement that provides free Azure training courses when your accounts are linked.
When you have completed the process you should see the “Azure Subscription” under your account along with several of the Azure courses.
What is Azure?
Ok, but what is the cloud?
The cloud is a set of connected data centers that Microsoft manages around the globe. IT teams can create solutions in the datacenters and manage them remotely. These services allow companies to create sophisticated solutions using virtual computing technology without all of the cost of maintaining a physical location.
Virtualization allows companies to save money and get their products up an running faster. There is no waiting for new servers to arrive. New virtual servers can be created in a matter of minutes! Virtualization is not limited to servers! You can create networks, subnets, firewalls, load balancers along with many other services.

Pluralsight is a subscription-based service that runs $29 a month or $299 a year that you can access with your browser, smartphone applications or smart TV applications.
Do you travel a lot? The smartphone applications will allow you to watch it offline!
