I’ve been fortunate enough to be part of the unprecedented growth of developer services and tools that are now available for cloud application development. If I think back 5 years, I don’t think any of us would have imagined how quickly cloud application development has taken hold.
This modern way of developing software is often referred to as cloud native. What is cloud-native? As one point of reference, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) defines it to mean using an open source software stack to be containerized, where each part of the app is packaged in its own container. These containers are dynamically orchestrated, so each part is actively scheduled and managed to optimize resource utilization. In addition, microservices-oriented development tools increase the overall agility and maintainability of applications.
The benefits make tech media headlines every week, and it seems like a no-brainer, but some companies struggle with how to get started. One of the best options, if you’re unsure how to get started, is to be guided by those with experience in the cloud-native arena.
Oracle is aware of these challenges and has developed a program to assist customers in this transition. The Developer Lighthouse Program (DLP) helps customers move off of ground zero and jumpstart their transition to cloud native application development.
What is the DLP? The DLP provides technical advice and support for the organization’s development team. The program focuses on the developer team by providing them assistance with the move to cloud native. One of the main components to the DLP is a cloud developer day which provides expert assistance in the following areas for an application of your choice.
The developer cloud day is 6-hours of customized training. The 6-hours may be a one-day delivery, or it can be adjusted to meet the customer’s availability. Optimally, the delivery will not be more than 3 days of 2-hour instructions on each day.
The topics offered are customized, cloud native topics that the customer chooses. These courses could be basic material such as Introduction to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), Introduction to Kubernetes, Introduction of containers and Docker or they can be more advanced topics.
