Cosmos DB Free for One Year and Other Azure Services Always Free

While the Cosmos DB emulator is a great way to learn Cosmos DB, it’s better to work directly with the full Cosmos DB service in Microsoft Azure. Previously this was a barrier to learning for many people. Now you can get 12 months of free access to Cosmos DB, Azure SQL Database, Linux and Windows virtual machines, and certain types of storage. Other Azure services are now always free including IoT and AI and Cognitive Services such as speech and face APIs.

Go here to get all of the details.

I previously published an article about learning Cosmos DB that includes important links helpful in learning Cosmos DB.
