During your Azure studies, practicing in a virtual environment is greatly beneficial to moving forward. While Practice-Labs continues to work on these virtual lab resources, Microsoft has several free sources available to assist you further!
- Microsoft Learn is a great platform, similar to Practice-Labs, where you can practice learned skills in a sandbox environment. They have multiple labs and modules available, and they are mostly free! Here is a full list of their free labs and modules for Azure, but they have several other Microsoft programs as well!
- Another available free resource through Microsoft is a 12 month free trial for the Azure program. During this trial, you will have access to the full environment, as well as the ability to explore Azure Services for 30 days to up to a $200 value. Although you enter your credit information to initiate the trial, Microsoft will only charge if you elect to upgrade to a paid membership after the trial period ends. If you do not, your account will be closed out automatically.
