It comes as no surprise that the demand for Kubernetes is skyrocketing across the industry. According to the CNCF’s 2019 survey, 78% of respondents are using Kubernetes in production today. This growth is contributing to a surge of demand for talent: there are over 100 thousand cloud native job postings across Dice and Indeed alone. The talent pool of people that have worked with Kubernetes and the adjacent technologies is limited and demand is growing.
Finding talent with cloud-native experience is a challenge and a lot of organizations are turning to the many re-skilling platforms out there to train the employees they have in house. However, the same software that trains your business folks to manage their time better will not give your engineers the skills they need to run Kubernetes in production. Engineers learn best through hands-on practice, in a real world situation with immediate feedback. Learning will be cemented if what is learned is immediately applied to the job.
Our mission at D2IQ is to help you solve your cloud-native challenges with deep expertise and automation. This mission is at the core of every product we create. Today, we are proud to introduce Conductor, our on demand interactive learning platform that will help you scale the cloud-native training in your organization and get your people ready for Day 2.
Since learning cloud-native is best done hands-on, Conductor features an in-browser interactive environment backed by a production-grade cluster. The interactive environment is native to the platform and accessed through the browser, so no lengthy setup is required. Validation guardrails are in place to facilitate correct execution of interactive exercises and provide immediate feedback.
Conductor’s content focuses purely on cloud-native concepts, covering various topics from the CNCF landscape as well as the portfolio of D2IQ technologies. From Kubernetes to observability to CI/CD, our content is delivered in bite-sized chunks that employees can easily slot into their day. Courses are expertly curated, reviewed and updated by our CNCF certified engineers and trainers.
Conductor can be deployed on-prem or in the cloud allowing you to keep your data internal to your organization. The platform’s interactive environment spins up clusters only as needed by learners and tears them down when they are no longer in use, relieving your operations from managing this infrastructure and ensuring that no cloud spend is wasted.
Eliminate costly production mistakes by tracking the learning progress of your team through the admin console and ensuring that no one gets access to your production environment before they are trained and ready.
