We probably don’t need to tell you how in demand cloud skills are right now, and how big of a shortage there is of qualified professionals. Just read these articles from TechHQ, CRN, TechRepublic, or our own 2020 Open Source Jobs Report which found hiring managers are more influenced by knowledge of cloud technologies than any other skill. If you are looking for a career change or to advance in your current IT career, cloud is the best place to start, and now is the time.

To make it easier to get started, Linux Foundation Training & Certification is offering 40% off our cloud training plus certification bundles, and 50% off our cloud engineer bootcamps through May 18! These offerings provide the knowledge you need to be successful in an entry-level cloud position, and the industry-leading certifications to prove it. 

Bundles, which include a training course and certification exam, are discounted by 40%:
