by Alex KhizhniakDecember 6, 2016
In a user-owned cloud environment, engineers can learn and play with open-source Cloud Foundry first-hand. The course is offered in basic, intermediate, and advanced versions.

Altoros has announced the availability of “the first-ever Cloud Foundry training platform.” In addition to online tutorials, the program offers a real infrastructure where you can play with deployments and “learn cloud-native development first-hand,” according to the company.


Three course levels

A series of five-lesson courses are targeted at developers, operators, and DevOps engineers who use open-source Cloud Foundry. Users can choose from the three course levels:

  • basic
  • intermediate
  • advanced

CF Training Basic

“Whether you’re new to Cloud Foundry, have some experience with it, or already have substantial expertise, Altoros has developed a course to fit your needs,” said Kirill Grigorchuk, the Head of Cloud Foundry practice at Altoros, in making the announcement.

CF Training Intermediate

All of the courses are delivered through a web experience, with no required plugins or additional services. All one needs is some AWS infrastructure, either existing or created at the beginning of a course.


Who may be interested?

The training is targeted at developers, architects, and DevOps engineers dealing with Cloud Foundry as end-users. It may also be useful to top-level technical managers as a tool for fostering digital transformation within enterprises. The main courses include:

  • Open-source Cloud Foundry for Operators
  • Open-source Cloud Foundry for Developers
  • Open-source Cloud Foundry for DevOps


Cloud Foundry Professional Services for Healthcare: Compliance, Security, Performance

All topics are covered

Training starts with lessons on how to install Cloud Foundry and BOSH and advances such topics as:

  • deployment
  • services
  • manifests
  • application management
  • the ELK deployment
  • and other skills

There is a quiz at each lesson’s conclusion to reinforce what’s been learned.

Altoros provides a fully-featured console similar to what many developers use with Linux OS. Additionally, a file explorer allows for managing and editing files without touching the console.

CF Training Advanced

“Our goal is to provide most relevant training materials on cloud-native development in various Cloud Foundry distros to create a marketplace of cloud-native training, in which your business will be able to find a way to realize rapid innovation, training, and staff development continuously and in large volumes,” —Kirill Grigorchuk, Altoros
