People who are keen about Microsoft Azure often ask if they can use free Azure services to learn about the platform. There is indeed a way to get free access to Azure to start exploring the platform.
Visit this website to get started with your free Azure account. As you can see, you will get a lot of free value once you created your free Azure account:
- 12 months free access to some popular services
- 25+ services that are always free (with some limitations)
- $200 credit to explore any service that exists in Azure
After you login into the Azure portal with your account, you can now access the available services by searching for “Free Services” from the search bar.
You can not only see the free services (and their limitations), you can also directly provision the services from there.
It’s a great way to start exploring the Azure platform for free and make your first steps in the Microsoft cloud. Have fun!
