As Cloud Academy continues to grow, we want to build a vibrant community between our customers, employees, partners, and tech enthusiasts around the world who may find value in our continuous training solution that provides online training in 140+ countries worldwide.
There are many ways to build great communities, but LinkedIn feels like the right place to start. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve launched the Cloud Academy Community group on LinkedIn.
Here is a summary of what we’re trying to accomplish.
What is it?
This is a community of tech enthusiasts, cloud professionals, and digital innovators interested in learning more about cloud computing and technology in general through the Cloud Academy platform.
What’s our purpose?
Our objective is to build a community on LinkedIn to foster discussion about industry and platform trends and best practices for developing tech skills. Our vision is to enable our community to socialize, ask questions, and receive the support needed. Our SMEs will be there answering content questions and sharing news about Cloud Academy, such as new features, content, events, and webinars.
What you can expect
A place to share your achievements where they will be celebrated
We love it when we see our customers share their achievements on their social media profiles. Whether you just passed a certification exam, completed a full learning path, or even just solved your first lab challenge, we would love for you to share your success on our social networks and in the group!
Communication on new product features and content
Our Content team is working round-the-clock to provide the most up-to-date content, and our Product team is constantly releasing new features to enhance our customer experience. We’ll keep you posted in the group when we have important announcements.
Information on events and webinars
During the pandemic, we switched our focus from large tech events to online technical webinars. We’re working on 1-3 webinars each month and we’ll keep you posted as soon as it’s time to register.
Once our world is able to safely host and attend events — such as AWS re:Invent or Microsoft Ignite — we’ll also keep you posted where we are located so we can meet you in person and hand out some our of favorite swag.
We’ll share thought-provoking insights and industry trends
Our SMEs will ask questions, post quizzes, and offer other prompts to help keep you informed, foster discussion, and inspire learning.
A forum to ask questions about Cloud Academy
Whether you’re an existing customer or you’re considering joining us as a customer, we’ll have our Customer Success Managers in the group ready to answer general questions about our training content, platform features, and certifications.
Please keep in mind that we won’t have a dedicated technical or customer support team in the group, so please contact our Customer Support Team for all technical, account, and billing questions.
Learn about technical job openings
In our group, we’ll keep you posted about new remote and on-site positions. Our Corporate Headquarters is located in San Francisco, California, and our Engineering and Product teams work in our European office in Mendrisio, Switzerland. We are always looking for ambitious and energetic people to join our growing team and help build Cloud Academy. Our company culture embraces and supports independence, transparency, positive communication, professional development, and a work-life balance. We also bring all of our team together every year for a global meeting near beautiful Lake Como in Switzerland.
As a community of tech enthusiasts, our community group also welcomes other technical job postings, so make sure to stay tuned if you are hiring or looking for a new job.
We’ll share our unique point of view on how organizations and individuals alike can solve the growing tech skills gap
We know from talking to customers every day that many organizations face the challenges of closing the technical skills gap. We believe it’s one of the most important challenges to solve, and we want to build a community of people committed to building tech skills and discuss our point of view on how to solve this ever-changing challenge.
Join the group
If you’re interested in building your technical skills and want to join conversations with people who share your passion for all things cloud, DevOps, or tech in general, please join our LinkedIn Community. We hope you’ll enjoy it, and don’t be shy — engage as much as you want.
