Together the companies plan to provide access to three new learning pathways on the Pluralsight technology learning platform, including Java Development, Node.js Development and IaaS Foundations, all built on Oracle Cloud. Two new cloud courses, Cloud for Developers and Compute Cloud Service Fundamentals, are also being released as part of the collaboration.
“India will soon have the world’s largest developer base. Cloud Technology skills are among the most important skills that developers in India need to possess to add value to the ever- changing technology landscape. We are excited to partner with Oracle to empower learners to advance their knowledge on the fast-growing Oracle cloud”, said Arun Rajamani, Country GM, Pluralsight India.
The new learning pathways and courses were created by Oracle’s cloud experts and curated by Pluralsight, in collaboration with Oracle University, to provide Pluralsight subscribers with guided learning in Oracle Cloud topics. Pluralsight’s technology learning platform also includes dynamic skills measurement, on-demand mentoring and other tools to enhance the learning experience.
“Pluralsight has built a rich community and library of content that helps developers take their skills to the next level,” said Damien Carey, Senior Vice President, Oracle University.
“By expanding Pluralsight’s offering with new Oracle courses, we are providing increased opportunity for developers to learn valuable new skills and techniques to keep up with the latest and ever-changing demands of the software development world,” Carey added.
The partnership comes at a time when the software player is trying hard to transition its on-premises customers, which constitutes a vast majority of them, into taking to cloud services. To facilitate this, the company has moved its physical Exadata analytics server into the Oracle Cloud, to offer organizations the flexibility and choice of deploying advanced database clouds for critical workloads. It has also revealed plans to introduce the Big Data Cloud Machine as part of the Cloud at Customer program, that provides the choice to run applications in Oracle Cloud or in on-premise data centers.
