Any IT professional worth her/his salt should be experienced enough to learn new software in real time. Or is this just an advertisement?
Forgive me if I am wrong, all my years in IT have honed my cynicism to a razors edge.
I find that people who think that they've learned something by just hacking at it, usually have a greatly elevated sense of their own abilities, unless they've been working in the field for a long time.
Most people haven't been working in Cloud Computing for a long time, as it's not been around that long. I'd certainly like a primer in Azure, it doesn't mean that I'm not skilled enough to work it out over time by myself, just that being educated by someone more skilled than myself tends to accelerate the process.
I will tell you my terms. "Hell no!"
You can quote me on that.
The thought of Microsoft and the cloud together should is enough to strike fear into the hearts of otherwise stout hearted, fearless IT professionals.
