It is also recommended that you have experience working in Visual Studio or another IDE, as well as knowledge of Azure IaaS. However, students who may not have a technical background in these technologies, but who are curious about DevOps practices as a culture shift, should be able to follow the procedural and expository explanations in this workshop.

Before taking this course, students need a fundamental knowledge of Microsoft Azure, Visual Studio Team Services, Git, and Visual Studio IDE.
