Code: CN2-MAE-BM
Tuition (USD): $2,850.00 • Classroom (3 days)

This intensive three day hands-on course is designed to provide working developers, devops staff and other technology professionals with a comprehensive introduction to microservices and Microservices Application Architecture on IBM Cloud. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of microservices and how to maximize them in cloud native systems such as IBM Container Service. Students will gain hands on experience working with microservices in a range of labs using several key IBM Cloud platform services. The course covers the benefits of container based microservice packaging and use of registries as well as dynamic application management using Kubernetes on IBM Cloud. Attendees will examine various use cases and architecture patterns for microservice based applications throughout the course, with focused discussion on microservice communications, transactions and state management. Upon completion of the course attendees will have the skills and information necessary to begin designing and working with microservice based applications.

Skills Gained
