Microservices Engineering Boot Camp | Cprime Learning








Microservices Engineering Boot Camp

Learn a Practical Approach to Microservices and Get Hands-on Practice With the Real-world Toolchain.


For IT professionals, developers, software engineers, and DevOps practitioners – microservices training provides the technical practices and tooling fundamentals necessary to begin realizing the benefits of microservices as a foundation for IT architecture, software engineering, and service/release delivery. This course includes 16 hands-on exercises that give you real-world practice on the engineering tools and skills a team needs in order to realistically implement your own flavor of Microservices architecture patterns so you can address the team needs of your own organization.

Whether you want to create new services, decouple a few services from your overall architecture, or refactor an entire monolithic architecture into a microservice design pattern, this course quickly teaches you the practical toolset and skills to get up and running with microservices in your own systems. Loosely coupled components and services allow teams to deploy more freely and independently, with less risk to the architecture.

This is a lab-intensive microservices training course. Professionals who take this course should have some familiarity with Docker, Kubernetes, and AWS before attending.

Class exercises use Java, but for private corporate training deliveries, exercises can be done using your preferred language.  

Professionals who may benefit include: 

  • System and software architects
  • Developers
  • Testers and QA teams
  • Release engineers
  • IT operations staff
  • Site reliability engineers
  • DevOps practitioners
  • DBAs and data engineering teams
  • Information Security Pros

  • Adopt, plan or improve your transition to microservices
  • Map technical practices to the business strategy behind microservices
  • Navigate different tools for enabling microservices and how to use them
  • Communicate with stakeholders, management, and teams regarding needs and expectations around microservices
  • Build microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, and JFrog
  • Build more mature DevOps practices through microservice adoption
  • Refactor monolithic systems into more modular, component-based systems
  • Apply microservice use cases to continuous integration, delivery, and testing
  • Enable more automated testing and self-service QA capability

I really enjoyed this course. The content was very relevant as our project is in the midst of a transition from Docker Swarm to Kubernetes-based Openshift. The focus on Kubernetes was extremely useful and will be able to apply it immediately.

-Kyle M.

I got familiar with the new terminologies that I was always curious to learn more about. I felt this was a good crash course that I could learn and build my base on.

-Leena S.

The course gave me a high-level understanding, which was my main goal. The rest was a bonus.
