At dW Courses, you’ll find developer-oriented, outcome-based education that will swiftly add to your marketable programming skills.


In this episode of This Week On developerWorks, Denise Ruterbories introduces the new developerWorks Courses platform.

Denise Ruterbories and Calvin Powers discuss the many types of educational materials that can be found on developerWorks. For example in the Bluemix arena, developerWorks has launched a Bluemix Developer center to connect the engineers on the Bluemix team with developers working on Bluemix-based apps. developerWorks has also published over 300 tutorials on how to design, develop, and deploy applications on Bluemix.

But Calvin notes that some people enjoy a more structured approach to their education. Denise Ruterbories is the program director for developerWorks’ Skills Growth initiative. Denise discusses developers’ needs for outcome based education and developer’s ongoing needs to acquire marketable skills.

Denise highlights the Bluemix courses for both newcomers and for people who want to prepare for cloud app developer certification. Denise also talks about the current and upcoming course offerings from developerWorks, including the courses that are being offered for Java developers and for people interested in cognitive computing and Watson services.

Calvin notes that the courses are free for developerWorks users and developers don’t have to invest in expensive books or carve out time in their busy day to attend classes. Everything they need is online at the developerWorks courses center.
