VMware Pivotal Labs: Master Class for Platform Engineers
The main focus of the course is on enabling students to grasp the breadth and depth involved in running a PaaS. The course stresses the importance of platform automation, introduces the idea of platform as a product, and gives hands on experience on what it means to run and maintain a PaaS at scale. All of this is done hands-on. Product management, XP, and agile are explored in a fluent teaching style. We use tools like Concourse, BOSH, and CredHub, and discuss logging and metrics as well as Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). This all happens in the context of a specific IaaS*, to be as close to a future customer experience as possible. At the end of the course we expect students to be prepared to work productively with Pivots in a Dojo or to join an ops team that has gone through a Platform Dojo with Pivotal and speak the same language.
The PAL teaches developers and architects how to build and architect cloud-native software and covers the following topics; Pivotal Cloud Foundry, greenfield cloud-native development, end state reference architectures, replatforming, modernization.
