# Azure Developer College

The Azure Developer College is the kick-start for the Cloud Native Application Developer training. Participants receive the tools for successful software development in the cloud through a combination of theory and practical elements within a one-week training block.

During the training week, what has been learned is applied directly in the hands-on sessions. Upon completion of the college, each participant receives a certification voucher, depending on availability, in order to have the acquired know-how validated in the context of an official exam. There is also the option of participating in the Build Track beyond the training week with Microsoft Solution Architects to apply what has been learned to a concrete customer project.

[!WARNING] An Azure Subscription is required to participate in Azure Container Days for Developers. A Trial Subscription is not sufficient for participation. In order to participate successfully, you will find three options below to ensure subscription access to the required resources:

  • Option 1: Access to a subscription by the company. The total cost per participant is about 50,00€.

  • Option 2: Upgrading the trial to a paid subscription. The costs incurred will be deducted from the credit card on file. Suggestion: Charge the costs incurred to the company as expenses, of course after prior consultation with the respective responsible persons in your company. Also here the costs amount to approx. 50,00€ per participant.

  • Option 3: We provide you with an Azure Subscription worth $100.00 (US dollars). This costs 100.00€ plus VAT and cannot be taken back as soon as it is awarded.
