How do I build my technical capabilities faster?

Whether you are new to the cloud, have an established cloud practice but need deeper technical capabilities, or are looking to build additional cloud workloads or practices, it may feel like a daunting task to build your technical capabilities. Where do you start? Who can help you? Are there technical resources that understand your partner business? What if you have a hot customer deal that you need immediate help with?

Look no further! Let me introduce you to technical journeys. Technical journeys are available by practice area and provide Microsoft Action Pack and competency partners with a recommended path of technical presales and deployment services as you get started, build and operate your business, or plan, build and deploy your apps.

Three ways to engage

This is great news!

Would be wonderful if we could do something similar around your P2P Journey and I'm happy to be part of making it happen as I'm super-passionare about this topic!

Being great at P2P and know how to swing it will help your revenue grow big time - don't know if it's 3.59x or more! :-)
