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.

Course Overview
Hey everyone. My name is Richard Seroter, and welcome to my course, Cloud-native Architecture: The Big Picture. I'm a senior director of product at Pivotal, an 11-time Microsoft MVP, and lead editor for the cloud topic at infoq. com. If you're an established company that isn't all in on the public cloud, and honestly, few are, does that mean you can't be a cloud native? Nope. In this course, we're going to debunk that myth and show that cloud native is about how, not where. Some of the major things we're going to include are the core principles behind the ideas of cloud native and how industry leaders define it. We're going to look at the application, infrastructure, deployment, and team-driven patterns that represent cloud-native ideals. And then we'll review the technologies that cloud natives use to deliver better software. By the end of this course, you'll know what it means to be a cloud, and more importantly, what ideas you can start incorporating today to build and operate software that matters. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn what it means to be cloud native with this big picture course, at Pluralsight.
