Oracle Offers New Cloud Developer Certification and Free Training Resources

Oracle has announced a new Developer Associate certification for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The Developer Associate certification is intended for developers who have 6 months of experience in developing and maintaining applications. With this addition, Oracle now offers five distinct certifications for architects, operators, and developers on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

The certification and training were announced by Rohit Rahi, senior director, product management, OCI, in an Oracle Cloud blog post.

For the certification, developers need to have a solid understanding of cloud native fundamentals and in-depth knowledge of at least one programming language. They should demonstrate knowledge of developing, securing, testing, and operating applications in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, and the ability to use the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure service APIs, CLI, and SDKs to write applications. Practical knowledge of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure architecture, use cases, and best practices is recommended.

Oracle has teamed up with Oracle University on two fronts: reducing the pricing for the certification exams and providing training content free of charge to help you learn Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and get certified. Engineering product managers and subject matter experts have created and fine-tuned the content and already presented it to hundreds of customers.
