SUSE has joined hands with Udacity to launch the Cloud Native Application Architecture Nanodegree program to address an industry-wide talent shortage in the critical area of cloud native application delivery.
In addition, SUSE is sponsoring 300 scholarships to aspiring cloud native practitioners for the full Nanodegree curriculum. The scholarship awards will be merit based and allocated across a diverse range of course participants.
Sarah Whitlock, vice president, SUSE & Rancher Community, at SUSE, said: “This premier program will empower application developers and operations specialists with leading-edge cloud native application delivery skills and expertise.”
Scholarship applications for the Cloud Native Application Architecture Nanodegree program are now being accepted through May 25. Select applicants will be eligible to take the first course in the program, Cloud Native Foundations.
The free, online course introduces basic skills needed to develop and deploy cloud native applications. Following completion of the course, 300 top performers will be selected to receive a scholarship for the full Cloud Native Application Architecture Nanodegree program which will be available later this year.
