That’s why the Cloud Foundry Foundation and The Linux Foundation is creating a cloud developer education and certification initiative: The “Cloud Foundry Certified Developer” program.

In a recent survey, the Cloud Foundry Foundation found that “64% of IT professionals and executives agree that the developer shortage is a real threat.”

Linux Foundation offers Hadoop training

The popular big data program Apache’s Hadoop is difficult to use. Indeed, Datanami, an important big data publication, recently found that “the Hadoop dream of unifying data and compute in a distributed manner has all but failed in a smoking heap of cost and complexity”. One reason? “It’s just a very complicated stack to build on.”

One answer: Educate developers. That’s where The Linux Foundation comes in with its latest massive open online course (MOOC): LFS103x — Introduction to Apache Hadoop.

Google presents its open-source goodies to the world

Google lives and dies on open-source software. Without Linux, there would be no Google. The company both uses and makes open-source code every day of the year. In 2017 alone, Google has open-sourced Chrome for iOS; Upspin file-sharing; E2EMail, experimental end-to-end email encryption; and the Guetzli JPEG encoder. There’s only one problem. How do you find all these projects? Google finally has given us the answer: Google Open Source Projects.

Enterprise container DevOps steps up its game with Kubernetes 1.6

Managing containers isn’t easy. That’s where such programs as Docker swarm mode, Kubernetes, and Mesosphere can make or break your containers initiatives. Perhaps the most popular of these, Kubernetes, has a new release, Kubernetes 1.6, that expands its reach by 50 percent to 5,000 node clusters. Conservatively, that means Kubernetes can manage 25,000 Docker containers at once.
