Course description

Microservices, Serverless, OpenShift

The demand for serverless is accelerating as organizations look to scale more quickly and efficiently. With the increase in cloud adoption, Microservices within the serverless stack are becoming more popular with faster deployments and greater flexibility.

This intermediate-level course begins with a refresher on Microservices and the advantages of using a Microservices architecture. You will then gain an understanding of how serverless benefits developers, when to use serverless programming and serverless deployment models, and be introduced to serverless technologies. You will discover how serverless supports continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), and microservices integration.

Hands-on labs throughout this course give you the experience to create and deploy Microservices using OpenShift and Istio. For your final project you will put into practice your serverless and microservices skills and create a real-world serverless web application using OpenShift and Cloud Object Storage.
