Technical Introduction to Microservices Training

Quick Enroll

Course#: WA2579
Courseware: Available for sale

This 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.

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

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