Nucamp CEO, Ludo Fourrage joined by Jonika Hoomes and Kate Rivera, Google Cloud Learning Services for Campfire episode #39

I met with Google Cloud's Jonika Hoomes and Kate Rivera to talk about what the partnership between Nucamp and Google Cloud means for you as you pursue a career in web development.

Our partnership with Google Cloud Learning Services has injected Google Cloud content into the Front End and Full Stack Bootcamp curriculums.

Why is this a big deal?

The world is shifting to cloud computing and the demand for developers who understand cloud technology is rising.

“Right now there is an absolute massive talent shortfall in the area of Cloud worldwide. Where it's particularly acute is around developers. So the builders: people who understand Cloud-native development, who know how to work with containers, microservices, Kubernetes, etc.
Anything that you can do to round yourself out as a Cloud-native developer or Cloud developer is going to be the biggest bang for your buck.” Kate Rivera, Google Cloud Learning Services

Jonika and Kate shared their journeys into tech and answered a number of insightful viewer questions.

They gave advice on the prerequisites for becoming a Google Cloud engineer, how to overcome the inevitable imposter syndrome everyone dreads, and more.
