Hi,
I am thinking about trying out Azure for some pet/non  commercial  projects . Does your book cover how to minimize costs to try out database driven ,Java based , Web Services with Azure?
I tried out AWS on the promise of a free 1 year trial below a certain level of activity. Then they billed me the first month  for a small  web site that had no traffic.
I just felt scammed by Amazon .
thank you.

Hi Paul, just wondering whether you would find Azure Architecture Diagrams useful. It helps visualize complex Azure architecture diagrams in minutes. Hope this info is useful.

Thanks Timothy.
At this point I'm more interested in learning the basics of Azure and whether it would be useful for my needs.
At this point, a complex architecture would be premature . It might be worth checking out at some point in the future  though .

You can start here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/free/.

The Azure trial offering includes $200 credit plus many services that are free. The page lists very clearly what is offered for free as part of the trial, what is always free and so on.

Minimizing costs is very specific to what you are trying to implement, though through the book I made sure examples can be run within the free trial. For example, for Azure Data Explorer, in the book I'm provisioning a Dev instance (cheapest SKU) and recommend stopping the cluster when not in use.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Vlad . That is useful info . It's good to know the reader can use and learn from  the book without running up costs.
