As question implies. I want to learn cloud computing (I am data analyst by title) but don't know how much can I learn from free $200 that Azure gives?
Also, if I want to make career switch to more lucrative job, how would I show practical experience when I don't use it at my current role?
Note: my company has Azure but the issue was that sandbox request was never entertained. Tried using databricks for pyspark but they shut down the resource saying it needs to be assigned to cost centre.
Are there learning 'paths' type courses for Azure (scratch to de/ds azure) besides microsoft?
Lastly, how much weight do certifications hold when applying for jobs?
I currently have experience in following: Python, SQL (self-learnt, waiting to find a job still to apply it), VBA, JS/HTML/PHP/CSS, M-Query.
Thanks for answering.
