What is a developer?

As a developer you leverage your end-to-end technical expertise in large scale distributed systems' infrastructure, code, inter- and intra-service dependencies, and operations to develop and improve the reliability, performance, efficiency, latency, and scalability of services and/or products operating at scale proactively and continuously. This role includes advisory on code optimization, sharing expertise and insights drawn from working across related services or products, and participating in incident response throughout development and operations lifecycles. You develop code, scripts, systems, and/or tools that reduce operational burden by automating complex and repetitive tasks, enable product engineering teams to increase the velocity at which they can safely deploy changes to production, and monitor the effects of changes across systems, services, and/or products.

Your path to becoming a developer

Option 1: Self-Paced Training

Work through online guided trainings paths at your own pace. As you journey through the learning paths and modules, you will be exposed to some of the skills you need to help you get credentialed.

Option 2: Instructor led training

Choose a traditional classroom training setting to learn on your own schedule, at your own pace, and in your own place.

Get Certified

Once you have completed the self-paced training and/or the instructor led course, try a practice assessment to see if you are ready for the certification exam.
