Global managed services provider 2nd Watch recently announced the launch of the AWS Developer Acceleration (DevAx) program, allowing developers to tailor their skill sets.

Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) is one of the most widely used cloud computing resources on the planet, making it a prime location for application developers to release innovative resources and reach new customers. 2nd Watch, an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, created this new program to provide developers with the necessary education to ensure future cloud projects meet Amazon’s expected standards for today’s working world.

The 2nd Watch DevAx program is a multi-day training workshop designed to address the most prominent topics in cloud computing. Developers will focus their attention on six specific training modules:

  • Module 1 – Lift & Shift – Migrating the Monolith
  • Module 2 – Configuring Release Automation
  • Module 3 – Create a Microservice
  • Module 4 – Refactoring Your Data
  • Module 5 – Messaging & Event Driven Systems
  • Module 6 – Authentication & Authorization for Microservices

“Our DevAx program was designed to enrich in-house development teams that have company-wide goals to modernize their applications and workloads,” stated Samm. “It’s perfect for teams with monolithic Java and .NET (News - Alert) applications that want to modernize their applications and companies motivated to develop cloud-native apps. We’re excited to officially launch the program today and look forward to partnering with our clients to grow their AWS skill sets.”

2nd Watch is not the only company looking to provide IT professionals with new cloud skills. In fact, AWS itself recently launched its own free cloud training program, in order to support the growing demands of this emerging tech.  With the cloud revolution still in full swing, cloud developers have a need – and even a responsibility –  to familiarize themselves with the latest developments in the space, in order to keep up with  evolving customer expectations and business needs.
