If you are interested in building distributed cloud applications, I can recommend you the online training ‘Architecting Distributed Cloud Applications’ by Jeffrey Richter. In this free online course Jeffrey explains many concepts around building distributed cloud applications. It’s not a how-to manual to build these applications, but much focussed on the architecture of building these kind of applications. I think it is a very informative and relevant course.

I think this an event you do not want to miss!
