>> Hi there and welcome back.
00:00
In this upcoming episode,
00:00
we're going to create a Microsoft account
00:00
in order to get started with Azure.
00:00
First, what is a Microsoft account?
00:00
A Microsoft account, sometimes abbreviated MSA,
00:00
provides a single identity to
00:00
access all of Microsoft services.
00:00
This includes offerings like: Outlook,
00:00
Office, Skype, Xbox, and Microsoft's App Store.
00:00
You can navigate to
00:00
account.microsoft.com to create a new account
00:00
with your existing email address,
00:00
or just create a new email address
00:00
using the Outlook or Hotmail domain names.
00:00
For our demonstration purposes,
00:00
I'm going to create a new outlook.com account.
00:00
Let's switch over to our browser.
00:00
Here we are at the main Microsoft account page,
00:00
If we had an existing account, we could sign in here.
00:00
But since we're new, I'm just going to click
00:00
on "Create a Microsoft account".
00:00
Next, we have the option of creating an account.
00:00
As mentioned previously, if you have
00:00
an existing email address you would like to use here,
00:00
you can go ahead and enter it.
00:00
However, for this course,
00:00
I'm going to create a new outlook.com account.
00:00
Next, I'm going to choose a password and
00:00
then fill out the capture on the next page.
00:00
Success, our new Microsoft account has been created.
00:00
We're going to use this new Microsoft account to sign up
00:00
for an Azure free trial in the next episode.
00:00
Let's switch back to the slides.
00:00
In this next episode,
00:00
we're going to take our new Microsoft account and
00:00
go sign up for an Azure free trial.
00:00
See you in the next episode.
