looking for advice

Post by Domtar » Wed Nov 07, 2018 9:43 am

hi all,

My company is looking into the Cloud for some services and I would like to develop my scripting skills to have a position in that project.

Does anyone here can suggest material that I could use to learn stuff regarding scripting for the cloud? I know I'm vague but I'm starting to look into this and don't really know what I need yet.

I'm opened to anything though.

thanks!

I suggest starting here: https://mva.microsoft.com/en-us/training-courses/getting-started-with-microsoft-powershell-8276?l=r54IrOWy_2304984382

There are also other tutorials on Azure/Cloud scripting on the same site.

Learning how to use Azure or O365 from the admin dashboard is a pre-requisite.

you misunderstood, I consider myself efficient with powershell, i'm not starting from scratch.

I'm looking for stuff related to scripting for the cloud. I'll have a look at this azure thing you mentioned.

thanks!

Although MVA has been around for some time, Microsoft Tech Community (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/) has started promoting about Microsoft Learn, which is an interactive, quick, and fun way to learn about Azure.

Here's the link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/azure/

Please, feel free to check it out! Everyone is talking about how good is learning from this site.

If you are proficient in PowerShell then you know remoting, DSC and workflow which are all used for the cloud.

The answer can only come if you ask about specific uses of the cloud. It is a huge technology. There are now many books on many aspects of cloud management via PowerShell and Visual Studio. The API is huge and the access methods are many.

I would start by installing the AzureRM module along with the MSOnline module. O365 is just a remote connection with an import-possession.

Most MS products ae supported via normal remoting methods but may have some variants when accessing in Azure.

The first important thing is to gain experience with the Admin portal for Azure or O365 to learn how the "cloud" is assembled quickly.

There are good blogs about almost every aspect of Azure access. Some examples: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/blog/tag/exchange-online/
