The Azure Cloud Sandbox is meant to provide a real, open Azure environment for you to learn by doing and cloud along with ACG courses. We allow a variety of tools and services within Azure, so you have as many choices as possible when working through your training. Follow along with some labs, practice certain areas or just explore!
