This course is designed for senior application developers who are designing and developing applications for cloud environments. It includes various reference materials that help to continue participants' educational experience when they are back at work after completion of the course. The PCD is endorsed, recognized and/or supported by several key technology vendors and standards bodies. The content for this courseis based on the cloud standards developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
