In partnership with Alibaba, we are pleased to offer the first, free Chinese-language cloud native technology online course, available today.

The goal of the “CNCF x Alibaba Cloud Native Course” is to guide developers in their use of cloud native technologies, including Kubernetes, etcd, containerd, and Envoy. The course also touches on the factors driving the rise of cloud computing.

Since early 2019, Alibaba has been migrating its entire e-business platform to a cloud native based infrastructure, providing additional motivation for launching an online education program focusing on these technologies.

The content of the course is in Chinese and fully tailored for Chinese-speaking developers. It is completely free and does not have any requirements for registering.

Course Overview

This is the first in a series of Chinese-language courses from CNCF and Alibaba that will focus on the cloud native technology stack, with both technical deep dives and hands-on lab sessions. This course is geared toward helping and mentoring developers to use cloud native technologies in production environments and understand its use cases and benefits.

Course lecturers include Xiang Li (CNCF Technical Oversight Committee Member), Lei Zhang (CNCF Ambassador) and other highly experienced engineers from Alibaba and other members of the cloud native community in China.
