Technical Review: Learn Azure in a Month of Lunches

Introduction

Have you ever read any book in the “Learn in a Month of Lunches” series by Manning? If you haven’t, you must READ THEM! They are just one of the best on the market so far. That’s why I couldn’t pass up the chance to contribute to another bestseller in this series – Learn Azure in a Month of Lunches by Iain Foulds that has been recently published .

This may sound funny, but it took me a month to review a “month of lunches” and provide useful suggestions. I used my Azure subscription and documentation (not limited to public version) to verify every “lunch”, code, text, figure, and also to find out how to make this book even better (’cause I really enjoyed it’s style and content).

Therefore, I’m happy and pleased to see that some of my suggestions and corrections have been taken into account to the final draft. In addition, it was pleasure to work with Manning and Iain Foulds.

Why should you purchase this book?

Since we have a bunch of services in Azure, we all needed a complete all-in-one guide or companion to get started with each of them and level up Azure skills. That’s sort of what the book is about, providing a comprehensive and interesting way of learning with exercises for practice (a purely hands-on book). You can find a detailed table of contents here.

Until then, have a nice reading!
