    • Azure Trial Subscription and Linkedin Learning

      Considering it will be all Cloud world and majority of IT population is talking about Azure. For people to experience and learn the depth of Azure platform it would be good to have LinkedIn learning's 1 Month trial subscription integrated with Azure trial. With this in-place an individual who he subscribing for Azure Trial will have access to learning platform as well just with one single subscription form. Otherwise one has to submit one trial Subscription request for Azure and one separately for LinkedIn Learning. Additionally this will help Microsoft advertising LinkedIn Learning.

        • Free trial period need to be more flexiable

          Free trial period need to be more flexiable. one month specific not work good because maybe i was so busy some times and free trial end without good discover azue,so ithink free trial could be depend on period between log in to azure and log out or it could be depend on using my resource upload and download bandwidth size and so on.
          Thanks

          • Explore Microsoft Azure for Beginners

            New user can't add subscriptions without credit card information. There should be another option available to verify bots or actual person. There should be case when user doesn't want to expose credit card info or don't have credit card.

              • Developer instance access

                As many have already posted, access to a developer platform without strict restrictions or having to use a credit card should be available.

                To make matters worse, my personal experience has been awful. When my 30 day trial was about to expire, I added my corporate card to continue it because I still had roughly $180 credit left and I wanted to preserve it. It stated I would be notified before my credit card was charged so I thought I was safe. My credit still displayed as available.

                I also added a developer subscription that added $25 a month (up…

                      I want to disable the ability to create free/trial subscription in our Tenant with work or school account, because we don’t want to manage resources created by users in a free/trial subscription.

                      • You should provide trial period for at least 6 months to explore Azure completely.

                        You should provide trial subscription period for at least 6 months so that we could test everything may be with some limitations. But 30 days trial is not much time to explore Azure completely.

                          • Allow people to try and learn and not disable before they even start work and learn

                            Last Friday I started to try things with Azure and I wanted to run a virtual machine and a Dynamics AX but when I left the office last Friday it was still preparing the machine.
                            I planned to do connect to it from another VM I also added, to understand the architecture and learn much more about Azure.
                            Just before I wanted to do a next step I got an email that my trial is cancelled because the charge limit.
                            I haven’t even started !
                            What can be done now ? I am a learner by practice and not by…

                            • Making Azure more developer friendly

                              Other than the free option that only last a month, I would love a cheaper pricing tier for developers learning the console and testing apps. Then when they start getting a lot of traffic or start making money from they app they can be charged accordingly.

                              Maybe you already have an option similar to that, if so, it needs to be more clear. The option that I was defaulted into was charging me 3$ a day.

                              • Ability to Pause during Free Trial period

                                There should ability to pause resource usage billing at-least during free trial period to avoid billing consumption and free credit over run. During this pause period all functionality should be not accessible and in sleep mode if cannot be stopped completely.

                                Requirements:
                                1. During learning period it is not possible to use azure every day 24*7 as new developers need to spend some time to watch video tutorial and online help about azure. If 'Pause' feature added then it will help developers to learn azure without free credit over run during initial free trial.
                                2. Another major reason is that…

                                    • More permissions for Student started Subscription

                                      To entice students to use Azure, and get them familiar with the platform, the student subscription should have more rights. They should be able to create a storage account, even 5GB would be enough.
                                      Students are not able to mess around freely with the Azure platform which makes them unable to learn it.

                                        • Azure For Students

                                          Let suppose I am a graduate student and want to learn Azure, Seeing this new Azure portal, It will be very difficult to start doing lab assignment. I thing students should also be given a free MSDN subscription wherein they can deploy their own environment. Even Microsoft can conduct an online event for this too.
