  1. Hi Scott, I would like to get a certification that would help me land a job in the competitive market place. Which one would you suggest?

  2. I have an account with college, and I cant create virtual machines bacause it is asking me to upgrade? Could you help?

  3. Thanks Scott, it was really informative. I would like to give some feedback though. please speak faster and skip talking about primitives or irrelevant subjects (Everyone knows what is SSD and HDD).

  4. Hii, I want to learn about Azure platform. Do, I need to start from Az-900 certification or different like Az-103/Az-104?

  5. Good day sir. First of all I want to thank you for this video. Its very helpful. I have learnt how to creat a VM so far and I want to learn more. Unfortunately i did not have money to purchase a course on Udemy because I don't have money but I pray and hope that the price will still be affordable when I manage to get some money. THANK YOU.

  6. Please take out the word "beginners", as this assumes you already know what they're talking about. 1:30 mins in and I'm already like, "whoa back up"……and I'm out.
