We have some good news for you: In April, Cloud Academy launched several new enterprise features and over 170 brand new training assets. In May, we’re hitting the road and visiting several AWS Summits. We started the month in Atlanta and we just got back from London. Next stop: Chicago on May 30. If you plan to be in town, look us up. We’d love to talk about your roadmap and how effective, programmatic training can support it.
Over 170 New Training Assets
In April alone, we made hundreds of additions and updates to our Training Library. Here are the most popular additions to your training arsenal from last month:
This Hands-on Learning Path prepares teams to pass the CKAD Exam and develop applications that leverage the Kubernetes container orchestration framework.
We released over 17 hours of training content to help you get started preparing for the Machine Learning Specialty Certification in this Learning Path preview.
This Learning Path contains five Hands-on Labs to get you started learning object-orientated programming using Java 9.
New Features Delivering Effective Training
And the beat goes on… Cloud Academy released multiple new features designed to help you deliver truly effective training. Here are a few more reasons that your organization will thank you for its future state.
New Hands-on Lab Challenges
It’s one thing to claim expertise. But it’s quite another thing to prove it. Lab Challenges push folks to the next level, provide little guidance, and test their ability to demonstrate problem-solving skills.
This May, we’re releasing two free Lab Challenges in connection with our presence at the AWS Summits in London and Chicago. Even if you won’t be seeing us in person, you can test yourself in this publicly available Lab Challenge.
We often evangelize best practices that generate higher levels of engagement with training. That’s our job. Some of our customers have proven, existing mechanisms that drive engagement — Continuing Professional Education (CPE) programs are one such mechanism. To promote continued education within your enterprise, we now support CPE credit tracking across Cloud Academy.
We know how much our customers love their assigned Customer Success teams, but we couldn’t help ourselves from making everyone’s lives just a bit easier. Starting in April, Cloud Academy customers can now integrate their preferred IAM/SSO provider and seamlessly onboard end users using a new, intuitive integration panel.
