Pluralsight Course: Azure Beyond Websites

I’ve been really actively involved with building things on Microsoft’s Azure cloud for probably about 4 or 5 years now. Many of you will know already that Have I been pwned (HIBP) was built from the ground up on Azure (in fact, one of the reasons I built the service was to play with Azure “in anger”!), what less people know is the work I’d been doing before that. In my previous life looking after Pfizer’s software architecture in this corner of the world, I was pushing hard to move apps we were building into Azure, in particular the PaaS constructs they have available. Time and time again, the discussion would go like this:
Vendor: (Pfizer outsourced all their dev work to vendors) We’re building this web app for you so we need a virtual machine and a SQL database.
Me: Is there a reason we can’t run it in the Azure
