Why study this course

A thorough understanding of the technology platform and cloud computing provider is essential for any cloud application developer. However, application developers benefit further from having a thorough understanding and working-level knowledge of vendor-neutral application design principles, ensuring that applications provide the most value throughout the application lifecycle.

The Cloud Developer course is for application developers who are designing and developing applications for cloud environments. This training is delivered as a 3-day classroom or virtual classroom program. The training covers best practices on application design for cloud environments and supports many vendor technology solutions, covering Open Source and major Vendor Standards. The principles covered in the course apply to the entire application lifecycle and are relevant to any technology or platform.

The course material includes various reference materials that help to continue participants’ educational experience when they are back at work after completion of the course.

Exams are not included with the Cloud Credential Courses at this time.
