Windows Dev Essentials

Get 1-month free access to thousands of quality tutorials on Pluralsight. I personally like Pluralsight because they break down courses in 2- 5-minute format. They also offer soft skill courses to help you heighten your communication skills in the workplace. Remember, communication is important in the industry. You can also get a 200$ credit for Azure. Use that credit to experiment and learn on your own.
