My new Pluralsight course—Cloud-native Architecture: The Big Picture—is now available!

I’ll be honest with you, I don’t know much about horses. I mean, I know some things and can answer basic questions from my kids. But I’m mostly winging it and relying on what I remember from watching Seabiscuit. Sometimes you need just enough knowledge to be dangerous. With that in mind, do you really know what “cloud-native” is all about? You should, and if you want the foundational ideas, my new on-demand Pluralsight class is just for you.

Clocking in at a tight 51 minutes, my course “Cloud-native Architecture: The Big Picture” introduces you to the principles, patterns, and technologies related to cloud-native software. The first module digs into why cloud-native practices matter, how to define cloud-native, what “good” looks like, and more.

The second module calls out cloud-native patterns around application architecture, application deployment, application infrastructure, and teams. The third and final module explains the technologies that help you realize those cloud-native patterns.

This was fun to put together, and I’ve purposely made the course brief so that you could quickly get the key points. This was my 18th Pluralsight course, and there’s no reason to stop now. Let me know what topic you’d like to see next!
