Azure Content Spotlight – Azure Cloud Shell (Preview)


Welcome to another Azure Content Spotlight! These articles are used to highlight items in Azure that could be more visible to the Azure community.

This week’s content spotlight is about Azure Cloud Shell, which is revealed at the Microsoft Build this week. Azure Cloud Shell is a browser-based hosted in Azure, and it is accessible from everywhere. This shell is constantly updated by the Azure team with commonly used command line tools and support for multiple popular programming languages. See the list of available features and tools here.

Each Cloud Shell session provides a ready to use environment which is automatically synced to a $Home directory that is stored in Azure. In here you can store your automation scripts, for instance.
