Student Reviews for the Skylines Academy AZ-900 Course by Nick Colyer:

“While studying for the AZ-900, I went through three courses (and of course read Microsoft's documentation). Of the three courses I went through, this one was, by far, the best of the three. Every was super clear.”

“Easy to understand and just in-depth enough.”

“Very clear and instructive modules. Thank you!”

“These videos are straightforward and to the point, I really like the lecture\demo format and Nick has a style that helps connect the information. I've recommended Skylines several times over the past few months to co-workers to advance their knowledge as well. Thank you!”

“I think this is a great intro to Azure and helps narrow the amount of material you need to focus on. Very clear, concise and presented well”
