Azure Training


I am an intermediate WordPress developer.

I would like to know if Microsoft Azure training is beneficial to me. I don't want to start a new topic. Rather I want to develop my skills in the website development only.

Would Azure be relevant to my website development path?

    Hey Sonam

    Since a long time Micro$oft isn’t something you should spend time/money on. There are plenty of free resources on WordPress Development – from Local to Staging and Live – and at WPMU DEV you’ll find some of the most important information to become Pro in no-time.

    You can start with the Academy Courses, and their Support is the best of the WordPress market. By the way, I’ve learnt more about WordPress after joining WPMU DEV than all my previous experience so I’m pretty sure you’ll get your path without anything from Micro$oft.

    Better to spend your money on a Full Membership at WPMU DEV, and buying the licenses for your most important Plugins & Services. The words Free and Excellent doesn’t tend to fit together on the same sentence, being wise on where to spend time/money is key.

    Hope it helps, cheers!

    Hello Sonam

    I hope you’re well today!

    If your goal is to develop skills in website/WordPress development, I’d say “Azure trainings” is not something you would want to “start with”. I agree with Fabio that our Academy is a great thing to start and browsing and engaging in conversations on our forums would be very beneficial (and thank you Fabio Fava for your kind words!).

    I would also suggest making WordPress Codex your “favorite place on the web” :slight_smile:

    There’s also a lot of free resources on webdesign/webdevelopment on the web that would definitely come in handy, starting from various courses, through services like e.g. Smasing Magazine ( – great place for webdesigners and web/app developers!), through useful sites like CSS-Tricks (, up to WordPress-specific services.

    I’d also suggest focusing more in PHP/JS/CSS area, if it comes to development for the web, as this is what actually “powers WordPress” and being more or less “literate” with it, it will be much easier for you to understand and switch over to other technologies.

    Best regards,


Thank NAME, for their help.
