Simple Hierarchy in PowerShell (SHiPs) is used in Azure to change directory into your cloud resources, much like you would change directory in a filesystem. This is useful for accounts that have many subscriptions and resource groups. In this hands-on lab, you will create a new Azure VM after changing directory into your resource group. Because the context is assumed in Cloud Shell, you don't have to specify the resource group or subscription in order to create a VM in that location.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
