IBL News | New York

Udacity opened yesterday for enrollment its AWS Cloud Architect Nanodegree program, intended to teach experienced developers how to create a highly available network with a fault-tolerant database using the Amazon’s core service.

“Learners will be able to monitor availability, test failure scenarios with recovery, and evaluate and harden the cloud environment’s security vulnerabilities,” explained Alison Rodal, Product Leader at Udacity, in a blog-post.

The program will include three instructors: Tom Verbiscer, Director of Engineering at Current Media, Leslie Bell, Technical Trainer at AWS, and Mehdi Razvi, DevOps & Cloud Security Consultant at NuEra Automotive Solutions.

The estimated time for completing the program is three months and the overall cost is $226 per month. The company offers the first month for free.

Udacity’s degree follows the high-demand of cloud architects in a market expected to reach over $600 billion by 2023, with Amazon owning over 30% of the current market.
