Last year, Lightbend released a three-day, instructor led training class entitled “Lightbend Reactive Architecture – Professional.” The main premise is that designing cloud-native systems and microservices requires architects and teams to think differently from the types of applications we’ve been building over the last 10-15 years. We set up the “Lightbend Reactive Architecture” class to teach development managers, architects, and software developers how to think about Reactive Systems – from design, through to production readiness in the cloud or on-prem.
Well, the training class took off. The student reviews have been great, and demand for instructor-led classes all over the world continues to grow. But there’s a limit to how many instructor-led classes Lightbend can teach and, for some individuals, committing to a continuous, three-day class is challenging. So we asked ourselves:
It turns out that Lightbend’s strategic alliance with IBM offered the ability to create a self-paced online version of the instructor-led class, available for free on IBM’s Cognitive Class online learning platform.
Breaking the instructor-led class down into six shorter self-paced online courses means you can tackle the material:
Each self-paced course in total covers the entire three days of the instructor-led “Lightbend Reactive Architecture” course. Even better news? We’ve already released the first three.
IBM Cognitive Class bundles self-paced courses into mini-study programs, called learning paths. The three Reactive Architecture courses available now are part of the “Lightbend Reactive Architecture: Foundations” learning path.
Lightbend and IBM think Reactive Architecture principles and techniques are the best way to build modern, responsive cloud-native (or on prem that’s ready for eventual cloud deployed) systems. We believe in Reactive Architecture so much we want it shared and known as widely as possible. So we are making all six of the self-paced courses free.
What’s coming next?
We will release the following three courses as part of a second Learning Path called “Lightbend Reactive Architecture: Advanced.”
It’s also worth mentioning that each course offers a certification document that confirms your knowledge and helps you stand out from the crowd.
We really hope you enjoy this learning experience. Start today, and become an expert in Reactive.
