With each new day, there seems to be yet another Azure service to explore and master.Ā If you try to keep up with the breadth of all Azure services and their associated features, you are bound to feel overwhelmed.

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time, of course!

It’s really that simple ā€” you just have to pick one service at a time and learn it!

I was pointed to a fantastic resource recently that does an excellent job of laying out a learning path for a lot of Azure services.

Using a flow-chart of sorts, your journey to learning Azure Batch, as an example,Ā can look this elegant:
