Cloud is one of the critical building blocks of future IT. It is no longer a matter of if you are going to use Cloud; it is a matter of when. The industry has reached its tipping point. Over the next years, the majority of companies will make a strategic move towards the Cloud.

Knowledge of tools like Visual Studio Code gives you an advantage, but is not required.
