Galvanize Collaborates with Pivotal to Launch Cloud Native Essentials Course for Pivotal Cloud Foundry Customers

Galvanize announced that it has launched a new ‘Cloud Native Essentials’ blended learning course, built for Pivotal Cloud Foundry® customers. The blended format of the course, which is comprised of part-time online learning and on-site training, allows development teams to continue contributing to their current business projects while elevating their technical knowledge. This unique offering is the first of its kind to target organizations that recognize the need to move to a cloud-native platform - converting applications from monoliths to micro-services. The course will train existing development teams to ship high-quality software faster and in a more agile fashion, utilizing the benefits of a cloud environment to align with business priorities. For Pivotal customers, these benefits may ultimately lead to improved software that will drive business results and improve competitive advantage. Course graduates will be equipped with the essential technical skills of Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Spring Boot™; enabling them to apply that knowledge to create micro-services and build critical value on a cloud investment. The Galvanize Cloud Native Essentials course can be a stand-alone class or part of a larger Pivotal Cloud Foundry and digital transformation training plan. Galvanize will schedule sessions, built around client requirements and goals, at client locations or at Galvanize campuses.

IBM and Galvanize Launches New Cognitive Curriculum on IBM Cloud for Developers and Data Scientists

IBM and Galvanize are announcing new cognitive, cloud and data science training initiatives on IBM Cloud, which will aim to increase the talent pool of cognitive developers and data scientists. This partnership will work to bridge the emerging skills gap for professionals by tapping the accessibility of cloud to bring an advanced cognitive and data skills curriculum to a broad range of global developers and data scientists. This extension of the IBM and Galvanize partnership consists of the new IBM Cognitive Course, delivered digitally through Bluemix, IBM's cloud platform. The collaboration also provides physical spaces for training and education through the new Cognitive Builder Fair Initiative and the Cognitive Builder Space, both of which provide opportunities for hands-on learning and access to cognitive and data science experts. The curriculum will be hosted on IBM Bluemix, which provides the foundation and services for a range of development environments, including the Watson Data Platform, the Watson Developer Cloud Platform and the IBM Data Science Experience. The first Cognitive Builder Space opens at InterConnect, IBM's annual cloud and cognitive conference, and features tutorials led by cognitive and data science experts. Technology advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are moving rapidly. As is the case with any budding industry, a skills gap is emerging in which the market doesn't have enough experienced developers to address the growing demand for cognitive and AI development. IBM and Galvanize together will bring cognitive skills and data science curriculum to individuals interested in some of the most lucrative careers in tech and in helping bring to bear the benefits of man and machine. The new programs integrate IBM's skills and subject matter expertise in data science and cognitive development with Galvanize's immersive learning philosophy and deep community of students, startups and instructors. IBM is among the first major cognitive technology providers to design such a course to prepare next-generation developers and data scientists for new collar jobs that support the fast pace of innovation in this area.

The NYC pop-up is a 6,000 square foot ground floor space in the same building which will host events, meetups and core partnerships including the launch of IBM's New York City Bluemix Garage, an innovation lab.
