For IT professionals, developers, software engineers, and DevOps practitioners – microservices training provides the technical practices and tooling fundamentals necessary to begin realizing the benefits of microservices as a foundation for IT architecture, software engineering, and service/release delivery. The workshop includes 16 hands-on exercises that give you real-world practice on the engineering tools and skills a team needs in order to realistically implement your own flavor of Microservices architecture patterns so you can address the team needs of your own organization. Whether you want to create new services, decouple a few services from your overall architecture, or refactor an entire monolithic architecture into a microservice design pattern, this course quickly teaches you the practical toolset and skills to get up and running with microservices in your own systems. Loosely coupled components and services allow teams to deploy more freely and independently, with less risk to the architecture.

Skills Gained

  • Adopt, plan or improve your transition to microservices
  • Map technical practices to the business strategy behind microservices
  • Navigate different tools for enabling microservices and how to use them
  • Communicate with stakeholders, management, and teams regarding needs and expectations around microservices

Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes

Very thorough and well-presented class. Pace of the class was perfect and labs offered great opportunity to practice material.

One of the best organized and thoughtful learning sessions I've attended, thank you!

ExitCertified education was extremely helpful for preparing me for the AWS certifications.

I've taken 2 AWS courses at ExitCertified both of them IMVP, they're my training provider of choice!
