Cloud-native Architecture: The Big Picture
Cloud-native is about how, not where. This course will teach you the principles, patterns, and technologies that help you build more scalable, changeable, resilient, and manageable software.
What you'll learn
You're asked to build more changeable, available, scalable, and secure software. While cloud platforms make some of those characteristics easier to achieve, it's more about how you build software, not where you run it. In this course, Cloud-native Architecture: The Big Picture, you'll learn what it means to be cloud-native. First, you'll look at the core principles behind cloud-native software. Next, you'll dive into the key patterns that help us create better software. Finally, you'll review enabling technologies that realize those patterns. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a strong understanding of what you need to do in order to start building cloud-native software.
Table of contents
Cloud native is a method of building and running scalable applications through the flexibility and resiliency of the cloud computing delivery model. Cloud native enables developers to make more frequent, powerful changes, without excessive effort.
Cloud-native architecture is more about how you build software, not where you run it. It is a design methodology whose focus is on how to optimize system architectures based on the distinct capabilities of the cloud.
This cloud-native architecture course will teach you how to build scalable, changeable, resilient, and manageable software. Some covered topics include:
- The principles of cloud-native architecture
- The patterns of cloud-native architecture
- The technologies of cloud-natvie architecture
Anyone who wants a high-level understanding of cloud-native architecture should take this course. If you want to learn the core principles, patterns, and technologies to build more better software, then this is the course for you.
This is a beginner level course which assumes no prior cloud-native architecture knowledge. You should be familiar with major cloud platforms and technologies.
