AUSTIN, Texas – January 11, 2017 – This Thursday, January 12, Catapult will kick off a free Virtual Azure Bootcamp to build participants’ understanding of Microsoft Azure, a key component in digital transformation. One of many Catapult cloud-first initiatives, the Virtual Azure Bootcamp is a chance for technologists from a broad range of backgrounds to receive training at no cost, on demand. It provides an in-depth training covering application development in Azure, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).

Over the course of seven weeks, the training will offer nearly 20 total on-demand, easy-to-digest training videos ranging from 5 to 30 minutes in length. Each week, participants will receive 1-3 videos which build upon lessons learned from previous weeks and can be watched whenever, wherever, and at the participant’s pace.

Catapult Cloud Solution Architects Mick Monk and Alonso Robles provide students the rare opportunity to access no-cost training from consultants with deep technical knowledge and years of experience leveraging Azure cloud across the business and public sector landscape.

“We’re very excited to see that the Azure Virtual Bootcamp has been met with so much enthusiasm and interest,” said Apollo Gonzalez, Chief Technology Officer, Catapult. “After hosting an in-person Azure Bootcamp in multiple cities across the United States, it became clear that the IT community had a need for more Azure training.”

Hundreds of participants will follow a journey in the Azure cloud that touches: Azure virtual machines, backup and disaster recovery, hybrid cloud enabling scenarios, integration, SQL and Azure, cloud application development, Azure networking, and more. At the end of the 7-week training, Azure Virtual Bootcamp participants will receive a certificate for successful completion.
