You'll need an Azure subscription. If you don't have an Azure subscription, create an account and add a subscription before you begin. The Azure free trial subscription type will not work with Databricks, but the exercises can be completed for free using the Databricks 14 day free trial offer on a pay-as-you-go subscription. Instructions for using the free trial offer are included in the exercises.
