Your free weekly Azure news fix. Published every Sunday, since 2014!
Azure Weekly is a summary of the week's top news to help you build on the Microsoft Azure Platform. We started publishing the newsletter in 2014 as we wanted to keep track of all the goings on, but there was nothing else out there that contained all the latest updates from the various Azure Product Groups and useful content from the rest of the community.
Now it's grown a global subscriber base numbering in the tens of thousands. In 2019 we spun out the ever-growing Power BI section into its own newsletter Power BI Weekly. Please subscribe to that too!
The Azure content has grown sizably since 2014 and we now use Machine Learning to so some of the heavy lifting, so that we can more easily review the content and spent more time on the weekly editorial, highlighting the most interesting announcements.
