The aim of the course is to gain knowledge of the development of innovative cloud computing and cloud applications. Cloud computing is changing the way applications are developed. We will become familiar with concepts, architectures and cloud technologies - the cloud-native architecture.
In addition to gaining in-depth knowledge of cloud computing and all levels of service orientation (XaaS; Iaas, PaaS and SaaS), we will learn in detail the architectural model, patterns and best practices for the development of cloud-native applications, which includes a multitude of concepts.
We will begin with the microservice architecture and learn about the development patterns for microservice. We will combine this with Docker (and others) containers and micro-kernels. We will get familiar with container orchestration tools, especially Kubernetes (and others).
We will continue to explore the concepts of cloud-native architecture: services, asynchronous patterns of calling services, circuit breakers, reactive microservice development models, event streaming aka Apache Kafka, configuration, service discovery, health check, metrics, security, fault tolerance, and others.
The goal will be to understand and develop cloud applications that run on resilient and elastic cloud infrastructure and platforms and understand how these applications work and how to deploy them on different cloud services providers (Amazon AWS, Google AppEngine, Microsoft Azure, Cloud Foundry and others). As part of the course, we will get to know the most popular PaaS platforms. We will get familiar with the concepts of private, public and hybrid clouds. We will also set up our own private / hybrid computer cloud.
At the same time, we will become familiar with the DevOps practices that are essential for the development of cloud solutions and learn about the concepts and projects of the CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation) such as Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing, Fluentd, Istio, Linkerd, gRPC and others. The course is practically oriented. Within the exercises, students in teams will develop innovative cloud solutions using framework such as Spring Boot, KumuluzEE, Node.js, Docker, Kubernetes, Prometheus and AWS, AppEngine, Azure clouds, and others. They will understand the importance of innovation in the cloud.
The best students will be able to participate in innovative projects.
