Red Hat Cloud-native Microservices Development with Quarkus


Course description

Develop microservice-based applications with Quarkus and OpenShift.

Enterprises are moving to cloud-native microservices architectures. Quarkus is an exciting new technology that brings the reliability, familiarity, and maturity of Java Enterprise with a container-ready lightning fast deployment time. Red Hat Cloud-native Microservices Development with Quarkus (DO378) emphasizes learning architectural principles and implementing microservices based on the Red Hat Build of Quarkus and Red Hat OpenShift. You will build on application development fundamentals and focus on how to develop, monitor, test, and deploy modern microservices applications.

This course is based on OpenShift 4.14, and Red Hat Build of Quarkus 3.8.

Following course completion, you will receive a 45-day extended access to hands-on labs for any course that includes a virtual environment.

Note: This course is offered as a five day virtual class or self-paced. Durations may vary based on the delivery. For full course details, scheduling, and pricing, select your location then “get started” on the right hand menu.
