Cloud computing is one of the most disruptive technologies of recent years. From small businesses to large enterprises, cloud technologies are increasingly becoming the platform of choice for developing and deploying applications.

In addition to lowering the total cost of ownership of applications and systems, cloud platforms provide several characteristics which allow software developers to architect applications which have high performance, massive scalability, high availability and reliability. With cloud platforms, provisioning virtual hardware infrastructure for deploying applications has become a trivial job — all one needs is a credit card and a computer with Internet access!

In order to address the challenges posed by contemporary application scenarios, an engineer today should to know how to build applications using cloud platforms. To fill an existing gap in this space we are offering “Architecting Software For The Cloud” as an online course for students and professionals worldwide during December 2012. We will provide a set of short lecture videos in the form of learning objects to students. This course will have assessment components in the form of quizzes. There will be opportunities to discuss online with fellow students. A certificate of accomplishment to the students who successfully complete the course will be given by the Continuing Education Program of IIT Kanpur.
