Ignite 2018: Get training on Microsoft technologies for free with Microsoft Learn

Keeping up with the latest Microsoft product and services in this era of infobesity is a pretty hard thing to do, even for people who work in tech. Microsoft has acknowledged it at Ignite today and announced the launch of a new learning website called Microsoft Learn.

“We built Microsoft Learn so that you could have one stop for self-paced, guided learning on all of our platform products and services,” wrote Jeff Sandquist, General Manager, Developer Relations for Cloud + AI Division. At launch, the new website features more than 80 hours of learning content for Microsoft products such as Azure, Dynamics and PowerBI, and there’s also everything you need to prepare for certifications exams. All the content is completely free, which is really nice.

Microsoft Learn won’t replace docs.microsoft.com, which will continue to welcome technical content about Microsoft products. Microsoft Learn will present information in a different manner with step-by-step tutorials mixed with interactive coding environments. There are also some gamification features with levels, achievements and trophies.

Microsoft wants Learn to become the best place to learn about Microsoft technologies, and you can help the team improve the content by sharing your feedback on GitHub.
