Before you can get started with Microsoft Azure, you need to create an account. There are multiple tiers of accounts, including a free version. 

Go to the Microsoft Azure website and click on Try Azure for Free.

Click on Start Free to proceed in creating a free account.

You can create a new account, sign-in with your Microsoft account or sign-in with your GitHub account.

After signing in, you'll be prompted to enter your information.

Even with the free account, you do need to enter a payment method. Nothing is charged unless you change settings later.

After entering all of your information, your Azure account setup will be complete. You can navigate to the Azure portal to get started with creating an application.
