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.
This course is designed for senior application developers who are designing and developing applications for cloud environments. It includes various reference materials that help to continue participants' educational experience when they are back at work after completion of the course. The course prepares candidates for the Professional Cloud Developer Certification (PCD) Exam provided by the Cloud Credential Council. The PCD is endorsed, recognized and/or supported by several key technology vendors and standards bodies. The content for this course, as well as the PCD certification is based on the cloud standards developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
