I am sure that you already heard a couple of standard introductions to the Azure Platform. Usually they introduce the concepts of IaaS, PaaS, SaaS and maybe FaaS. Then they tell you that you can build stuff from so called “building blocks”.
Full of motivation, you open the Azure portal only to find out that instead of a couple of blocks, there are hundreds of offerings to be consumed. Looking into the documentation does not make it easier at all. There are at least two dozens of pages that contain documentation about Azure. But where should you start?
In this session we take a look at all of the portals and websites that serve as entry points to Azure and we try to find out which one you should use for your purpose.
