The Linux Foundation has announced an Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp program to help experienced IT professionals move into cloud engineering roles in as little as six months.

Additionally, the foundation has launched a new training course, LFS243 – Service Mesh Fundamentals. The course will be available beginning July 31 and will also be a part of this new bootcamp.

The Linux Foundation Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp bundles self-paced eLearning courses with certification and dedicated instructor support. The training covers advanced IT concepts related to cloud, containers, service mesh, monitoring, logging and more.

Participants will also have access to a bootcamp-specific online forum to interact with other students and instructors, as well as live virtual office hours with course instructors five days per week.

Candidates have unlimited access to the program for 12 months. Those who spend approximately 10 hours per week on the materials should expect to complete the bootcamp in about six months, enabling working professionals to take advantage of the program. Upon completion, participants will receive badges for the CKA certification exam and the entire bootcamp. Badges can be independently verified by potential employers at any time.

LFS243 – Service Mesh Fundamentals training course is included as part of the Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp, or is available to take standalone. With the growth of microservices and Kubernetes production environments, there is a growing need to have tools to monitor and manage network traffic. This course explores the use of Envoy Proxy and Istio to take control of network access, the Foundation said.

The Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp is available for immediate enrollment.

The standard $999 bootcamp fee provides unlimited access to the course for one year including all content and labs. Through July 31, 2020 the bootcamp is being offered at an introductory fee of $599.
