Student Reviews for Skylines Academy:

“The Skylines Academy Team clearly works hard to put together the best of the best in certification courses and content so people can not only pass exams, but really learn!”

“It is so refreshing to see a team who not only knows their stuff, but can help people learn about Azure without breaking the bank.”

“I was taking courses with [larger cloud education company name] but I found that their material really fell short, as opposed to Skylines Academy who has Authors and Content Creators who actually work in the industry and have delivered solutions to customers. You can tell when taking the courses and reading through material that they have actually had their hands on a keyboard and have been in our [the students’] shoes. They are the best cloud training company out there.”


·       You’ll need to spin up a free Azure account for a more hands-on experience

·       We recommend you take the AZ-103 or AZ-104 course and exam to form foundational knowledge of the Azure platform

·       Previous knowledge of DevOps and/or other Microsoft Azure services such as compute, network, and storage is a must.

·       Drive to learn about cloud and Azure DevOps!

Welcome to the Skylines Academy Azure DevOps course: Development Processes & Source Control! We’re happy you’re joining us!

She was a Communication Studies major and English minor in college and participated in competitive high school speech tournaments prior to collegiate life. She gravitated toward technology through music, by way of being a DJ and needing to record demos for club promoters. By taking the time to develop initial skills of troubleshooting, she quickly found herself in jobs that started to graduate her toward deeper levels of technical skill.

A self-described tinkerer, Shannon has worked with technical mentors and colleagues who have helped her develop proficiencies in all things infrastructure. From her initial roots in help desk, to Windows systems administration, to VMware administration, to Exchange, to Exchange Online/Office 365, and finally Azure, she has carefully combined the right levels of technical prowess to propel her into her role at Microsoft. Shannon was a Cloud Solution Architect at Microsoft, tasked with driving high priority customer initiatives on Azure infrastructure in collaboration with customers and the Microsoft field. She is currently a Senior Cloud Advocate at Microsoft
