let me tell you a little bit about the course architect
Today. Mladenov is the co founder of Atari Technologies, a consulting and managed services company offering cloud based services for healthcare, manufacturing and education.

His official degree is in electronics and automation, but he specialized in information technologies
in his free time. He enjoys skiing in the winter and biking and sailing in the summer.
let's jump into our topic for today.
In this video, I will explain who this courses for walk you through the course objectives
and list prerequisites for successful completion of the course.
So who is this course for?
This course is intended for students looking to demonstrate foundational knowledge of cloud services and how those services are implemented in azure.
This can be non technical professionals involved in sales or procurement of cloud technologies.
IT professionals who would like to extend their knowledge of cloud technologies and become familiar with Microsoft Azure
software developers who would like to learn about Microsoft azure services or really any other professionals who are interested in career change.
So what will we learn during this course?
At the end of this course, you will be able to understand and explain the cloud concepts and how they are implemented in azure.
Understand the core as your services.
Explain the different security, privacy and compliance features in azure, as well as how azure services are priced and supported.
Before we begin with the topic, here's what you'll need
to be successful in this course, you will need to have basic computer skills and know how to start and stop programs on your desktop or laptop.
You'll also need to have a basic understanding of how to use the command line
because we will explain services that utilize Internet as a medium. You will need to have some basic knowledge of how Internet and computer networks work.
Of course, you will need to be enthusiastic and have willingness to learn.
And the most important. You don't need to have prior knowledge of the Cloud and Microsoft Azure
because the cloud is something far, far away from your home. You will need to have a computer and good Internet connection and a browser.
If you have Windows 10 on your laptop, you need to enable the ssh client feature.
The following link describes how to do that.
If you run an older version of Windows, you will need to install a third party application like Putty or Seguin. To follow the instructions.
You can see the links to the download sites on the screen.
If you have already have a preferred ssh client on your Windows machine, you can continue to use that one.
Mac users will need a remote desktop client app to connect to virtual machines running windows.
You can download one of these from the Apple App store.
I would recommend Microsoft Remote Desktop 10.
I wouldn't use the eight version eyes. There are issues with it.
Lennox users will need our desktop installed. It's an open source client for Microsoft Windows Remote desktop protocol.
And finally, you will need a text editor that you can use for editing configuration files and scripts.
I personally prefer V s code that runs on every OS. But if you have different preferences up to you,
you can use anything from note pad plus plus on Windows to text Edit on Mac to vie or nano on Lennox.
One thing you need to be careful about is the new lines and coding that differs between Windows and UNIX based systems like Mac OS or Lennox.
Make sure that the text editor supports the new line conversion between those
or else you can experience some unexpected issues.
Keep in mind that the built in note pat editor and Windows does not support Lennox encoding for new lines, so I would recommend using Notepad plus Plus or V s code on Windows.
It's not required, but if you'd like, you can also install power shell corps on your machine.
If you use V s code as a text editor,
it'll give you a nice code highlighting and auto complete.
You can follow the link on the screen to find out how to install it on your preferred operating system.
