Linux Foundation Launches Cloud Engineer Bootcamp to Make You Job Ready for Cloud Industry

Linux Foundation, the official organization behind Linux project, has launched a 6 months online training program to prepare more cloud engineers as the demand for cloud-skilled people grows in the IT industry.

These days, when the IT infrastructure revolves around cloud computing, traditional Linux sysadmin knowledge is not sufficient anymore.

Sysadmins need to know the newer technologies related to Linux containers, the backbone of cloud servers.

No one understands the technology trend in this field better than Linux Foundation. They work closely with industry giants like IBM, Microsoft, Google, Cisco to lead, to guide and to set industry standards.

Their latest training module Cloud Engineer Bootcamp is another step in this regard to bridge the demand and supply in the IT industry.

Cloud Engineer Bootcamp from The Linux Foundation

Cloud Engineer Bootcamp

The course is designed in a way that you could start learning from scratch. It starts covering the core, traditional knowledge of Linux system administration and then moves on to networking. You may take the certification exam at this point but that’s not mandatory and you can do it later.

The second part of the course module introduces you to containers (heard of Docker?) and then goes on to educate you on DevOps and SRE (Site Reliability Engineering). You’ll then learn about Kubernetes, the latest hot topic in the DevOps world.

When you cover the DevOps courses, you can take the certification exam. Linux Foundation certifications are one of the most valued in the industry, and it would help you boost your resume and your job prospect.

Here’s what you’ll get if you join the bootcamp:

  • Hand-on labs and assignments
  • 12 months access to the online courses
  • Dedicated discussion forums to ask for help with option to live chat with the instructor (within office hours)
  • Retake for both certification exams within a period of a year
  • 30 days money back guarantee

The course is self-paced and you should cover it in 6 months with an effort of 15-20 hours a week.

Cloud Engineer Bootcamp is priced at $999 but if you join before 17th June, you can get it for $599 (saves you $400). Individually, these courses and exams will cost you around $2000.

Frankly, this could not have come at a better time. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, economy is in poor state. People are losing jobs everywhere.

But the pandemic has also given boost to remote working and cloud computing business. As more companies prepare to adopt remote working, cloud servers will be more in demand.

It is high time to improve or learn skills that are sought after in the industry.

$600 may not be a small amount but considering that it can lend you a new job or promotion at your current work, Cloud Engineer Bootcamp is worth the investment.

If you don’t like the training or think it’s not worth the money, you can use the 30-day money back guarantee and get your money back. It cannot be safer than this.

Though Linux Foundation hardly makes any effort for “desktop Linux”, they are constantly working to promote Linux in the IT industry. Their training and certification programs are part of their effort to make more and more people job ready.

  • About the year 2005 I was talking with the CEO of the Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) the predecessor of the Linux Foundation.

    The CEO liked to go around telling people that because OSDL paid the salary of Linus Torvalds, he was “Linus’ boss”.

    I told the CEO that he would be much, much happier (and more successful) if he simply accepted the fact that he was Linus Torvald’s boss.

    Two years later that CEO was gone and OSDL had folded into the Linux Foundation.

  • Abhishek Prakash maybe enthralled with the Linux Foundation and it’s Microsoft employed president and dupe Jim Zemlin, but under no circumstances is the organization … “Linux Foundation, the official organization behind Linux”, and I am curious as to where he got such idiotic idea and with what verification.

    The organization cannot “officially” speak on behalf of Linux Kernel group or Linus Torvalds (neither of which the organization controls), or “Linux as such” – undefinable term, or even Free Software Foundation, stewards of the GPL which controls Linux licensing and usage.

    He needs to explain!!

    • From Linux Foundation’s About section: “The Linux Foundation is dedicated to building sustainable ecosystems around open source projects to accelerate technology development and commercial adoption. It is the home of Linux creator Linus Torvalds and lead maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman, and provides a neutral home where Linux kernel development can be protected and accelerated for years to come.”

      Linux Foundation is what governs, guides and in a way controls the Linux kernel project. Linux Foundation also pays the “salary” of Linus Torvalds. So yes, it is the official organization behind the Linux project.

      • Because the Linux Foundation “pays salaries” of Linux and Greg, that does not mean it dictates or directs Linux development in any way, nor does the organization have any control or direction, nor represent what-so-ever over the other 60 plus main kernel maintainers, and 500 additional kernel developers, all of whom answer to Torvalds, who does not in any way answer to or is represented by Jim Zemlin or the Linux Foundation.

        In fact more Kernel developers are employed by IBM/Redhat and other entities than for the Linux Foundation, and none, repeat none answer to or must abide by any directive or representation of the Linux Foundation.

        If you insist on following or interpreting any public relations posts by the Linux Foundation in making your judgment – which does not accrue to factual representation, than this is unfortunate and incorrect, and I will therefore inform IBM/Redhat – with whom I have had a close relationship – partly via IBM – for more than fifteen years, as well as being a Technology Partner with Suse, GmbH, Germany, of these follow-on mis-representations by ItsFOSS.

        It would be a waste of time attempting to rationally communicate with Zemlin, as an Employee of Microsoft

        Naivete and gullibility are no substitutes for clear and cogent knowledge and understanding of “exactly” the purpose and mission of many Linux and Free/Open source Software (FOSS) organizations and missions.

        Note: I was “officially” registered as an individual member of the Linux Foundation.

  • Thank you so much for sharing this. I recently lost my job and was depressed about it. I am going to enroll into this course. Let’s see if it can help me with employment.
