This Introduction to Microservices training course will help you understand the value proposition and technical aspects of microservices, a new and rather fuzzy concept used to describe rapidly provisionable, independently deployable services with narrow and distinct functionality.

For IT professionals, developers, software engineers, and DevOps practitioners – our 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.

Upon completion of this Microservices training course, students will have fundamental understanding of microservices and practical experience in implementing microservices using different technology stacks.

This Microservices training course is supplemented by hands-on labs that help attendees reinforce their theoretical knowledge of the learned material.
