Student Reviews for the Azure Architect Technologies Course by Nick Colyer:

“This is a great site to learn and Nick is awesome instructor. Since I have started my Journey with Skylines with AZ-900 this is the Third course I have completed so far. I am now preparing my AZ-300 Exam and after that 301.”

“Two Words...Just Awesome!!!”

“All the information was concise and engaging. I like how there is a lecture followed by a demo right after. It really helps to reinforce the topic while it is fresh in the mind. Overall, my second course with Nick, and I am enjoying them. I passed the AZ-103 exam using Nick's course on here, and moving on to 300 and 301. Thanks a bunch!”
