Michael Canfield joined UB in January 2023 as an IT Communications Specialist for UBIT. A former newspaper reporter with a background in higher ed communication, Michael is also a volunteer firefighter. When he’s not writing or learning about all things UBIT, Michael likes to spend time with his wife and two English bulldogs, Franky and Grace. He’s also an avid student of the Battle of Gettysburg and a (sometimes) hockey writer.

Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching now offers UB faculty and students access to Microsoft software design, developer and cloud computing tools. 

After signing up, UB students and instructors can access a host of products, including, but not limited to:

  • Project Professional 
  • Visio Professional
  • Visual Studio (Windows and Mac)
  • Azure DevOPS 
  • Machine Learning Server
  • System Center
  • Windows Server

Tools for artificial intelligence (“AI” for short) engineering are also available. For instance, if you are studying to be an AI engineer, Azure Dev Tools offer courses through the platform to help facilitate taking that path. 

Students who register for Azure’s cloud-building tools receive a $100 Azure credit, which renews each year they are an active student at UB.
