I am always asked where partners can go to learn more and build their skills around Microsoft Azure. As there are so many locations where great Azure content lives, it is tough for partners to keep track of them all, much less canvass all the Microsoft web properties looking for them.
As much of our readership here on the TS2 Team Blog are Microsoft Partners, I thought I would pass along an upcoming webcast on Microsoft Virtual Academy in the first part of June that you might want to consider.

In this two-part, demo-filled course, explore these and other hot topics, as a team of security experts and Azure engineers takes you beyond the basic certifications and explores what's possible inside Azure.
