Become Cloud Native

In just 48 hours, you will learn the fundamentals of building cloud native applications. As you learn, you'll pair with practitioners that have built applications and engineering teams for startups and enterprises - developers and platform engineers that have spearheaded the cloud native revolution!

Level-up your dev team

If you're a developer, lead developer, or platform engineer looking to make the transition to modern software development, Cloud Native Weekend is for you. Over the weekend, you'll spend the majority of your time immersed in leading edge tools and frameworks. You'll learn how to test drive clean architectures, how to organize your code base to evolve over time - and you'll learn when and when not to build microservice driven architectures.

Accelerate your team's transition to building modern software

Practice cloud native essentials in a hands-on, immersive learning environment while building real applications.
