Azure Info Hub

I may have joined the party a bit late with this website, but still it's a great and hidden gem on Azure.

Azure Info Hub (https://azureinfohub.azurewebsites.net) is a great website that combines all the information on Azure on a single dashboard. It not just shows general Azure related news, events and e-books, but also shows official documentation, videos, tools and trainings for each service Azure provides. Even though it's not an official Microsoft page, it combines everything together in a very neat way.

Here is what Azure Info Hub is, from their about page:

What Azure InfoHub is

  • A resource of publicly available content about Azure (you won’t find any content there that is not available somewhere else). You will find per service...
  • Links to official homepage, SLAs, limits, pricing
  • Short overview
  • Getting started link lists (how to start with using the service)
  • Full content map of the official documentation with links to the documentation
  • Links to videos (on Channel9 and YouTube), online-trainings, tools and StackOverflow questions
  • A link-network between content sources (feeds, Azure doc, Stackoverflow, Youtube etc.) and output channels (the website itself, its RSS-feed-capabilities etc.)

What Azure InfoHub is NOT

  • It is not an official Microsoft resource.
  • It does not contain any content only available there, it only references to other content.
  • It is not a way to “steal” web traffic from other Azure-content-source (it’s the opposite: it’s an attempt to direct traffic to these sources and make content visible/findable on a per-service-basis)
  • It does not have any hard SLAs.
