Cloud Foundry is one of the most contributed to open source projects ever, and is a great option to consider when hosting software. In this course, Cloud Foundry: The Big Picture, you’ll learn what is included in a modern application platform, and how Cloud Foundry works. First, you’ll explore the range of options available to application developers and owners. Next, you’ll learn how Cloud Foundry is put together, and patterns of successful (and unsuccessful) applications. Finally, you’ll discover the ecosystem around Cloud Foundry. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of modern application platforms needed to decide what’s the app hosting model for your organization’s developers.
