In this course, you will learn how to design and develop cloud-native applications—not just the ones that aren't cloud-ready or cloud-hosted—but ones that take maximum advantage of the cloud. You will learn the best practices for developing cloud applications, using Java EE as the primary programming language. You also learn how to deploy these applications using Bluemix, with its platform capabilities, Platform as a service (PaaS) capabilities, and its services.
