Hi! Happy to see Azure here. I'm a JavaScript developer, well... learner, but I'm working on stepping things up! What stage do you recommend learning Azure? I still have some blank spots in my skills, like I always fail when I try to use an API.

@jolenekearse is your blank spots more back end? Do you use Node.js for that? If so I can get you some resources in regards to that... Thanks for stopping by the booth, hope all is well in China :)

@jolenekearse I'm on the JS Advocacy team at Microsoft so this is music to my ears!

My roadmap is

  • Learn JS (language)
  • Learn Node.js (server-side programming)
  • Learn Azure Fundamentals (core concepts and services)

The last step can be done in parallell with the first since it is not JS-centric - but once you learn the fundamentals then definitely start applying them by trying out Azure samples using the JS SDK. What kinds of things do you want to build? What APIs are you trying to use? Leave me a comment and I can try to share better resources

Thank you for the direction! There are so many technologies to learn and I don't always know which direction to go in my learning.
I can't remember all the APIs I've tried to use. I just try when one comes up in my search for a problem I'm trying to solve.
I'm trying to get to a hireable state for my first tech position. But I originally got into programming to build educational resources and game apps for young students. I was an English teacher .
