Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform

Microsoft student partner clubs are on-campus clubs around the world that seek to empower and help grow the local community through technology. On the afternoon of Wednesday from 2pm to 4 pm, the Microsoft student partners club at the University of Nairobi held an Azure fundamentals workshop.

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform where one is able to deploy and build their applications. During the workshop we covered an introduction to azure and we were able to host an application using azure app service.

Students with their student emails were able to access the student azure student’s account. An Azure for Students subscription includes $100 in Azure credits to be used within the first 12 months plus select free services without requiring a credit card at sign-up.
