Jobs in Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing

The cloud has become a key enabler for innovation with beneficial features like high availability, unlimited capacity, and on-demand scalability and elasticity. Learn the fundamentals of cloud computing while being introduced to compute power, security, storage, networking, messaging, and management services in the cloud. While learning the fundamentals, you will explore tools and services offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) through interactive hands-on exercises. By the end of the course, you will have deployed your first website to AWS.

Best Practices for Micro-Services Development

Microservices are becoming the default mode of developing and deploying applications at scale. The microservices architecture makes it easier to scale an application to a large system and is a great enabler for continuous integration and delivery. Microservices architecture allows independent scaling, independent releases and deployments and independent development so that each service has its own codebase. In this course we will cover the best practices on how to develop and deploy microservices. You will learn topics such as different microservice architecture patterns, independent scaling, resiliency, service replication, service registration and discovery. By the end of this course, you should be able to design and build an application using a microservice architecture.

Serverless Introduction

Serverless technologies have become very popular recently because they can increase the speed of development and drastically reduce the cost of running a cloud infrastructure. This course combines the theory of using serverless technologies with the practice of developing a complex serverless application. You will learn advanced serverless features such as implementing WebSockets and stream processing, and learn about serverless best practices throughout the course.

What is Cloud Computing?

Today, all companies are adopting cloud computing to enable their digital transformation. The cloud tech services market is projected to grow 17.3% ($206 billion) in 2023.

Cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud appeal to many organizations because of features such as pay-per-use, ability to scale up or down based on usage, self-service, and more.

All these benefits lead to much lower costs, faster time-to-market and better service quality compared with traditional methods.

The growth of this technology has created incredible demand for Cloud computing jobs, from Cloud developers and Cloud DevOps roles to more specialized roles such as solutions architects and Cloud security engineers. Regardless of the role, Cloud computing skills are in high demand and have the potential to impact almost every industry.
