What Is The Cloud?
In the past, web hosting meant paying for resources upfront for the entire month. You would pay the same price, regardless of how many resources you used on a server. Someone who has maxed out a server at a 99% utilization rate pays the same as someone who barely used their server. It meant that the people who didn’t use the servers were paying a lot more than they needed to, which was also bad for the web host. The web host couldn’t maximize income, as they got the same income, no matter the resources that their clients were using. The cloud model is beneficial because you only pay for the resources you use. Everything is billed by the hour, making it exceptional value for the web host and user.

What Is Cloud Development?
It is writing code that interacts with APIs of a particular cloud environment.
The cloud has created opportunities for aspiring software developers to create scalable code. For example, the APIs that are exposed on Amazon will be different from the ones that are exposed on Azure.
While it might seem simple, it is not as easy as you think. It is very specific, and it involves knowing intricate details of how a particular cloud platform works.
Database creation and management
Developing in the cloud is going to work a lot differently from one platform to the next. It also means understanding how various services work on specific platforms.
The database service that is exposed on Azure will work differently than the ones on Google.
That makes debugging and fixing problems in your application difficult if you don’t understand the particular system’s internals. However, developing in the cloud can be a lucrative and fun business for enterprising software engineers.
What Is DevOps?
Developer Operations is a new field of software engineering that combines code development, quality assurance, and operations. It essentially streamlines the way that software engineers write and deploy code. It automates a few critical processes, making it super easy for developers to deploy code and fix bugs. The normal development cycle involves spending a lot of time and effort writing code, testing it, and deploying it. This new field changed that with the introduction of CI/CD and a set of practices that makes the process better. The ultimate aim of this field is to make the software released of higher quality. It also tries to shorten the development cycle so that developers can implement new features and fix bugs faster. So far, it has worked spectacularly well and has changed the field of software engineering.
Software developers always knew that process is key to efficiently building quality products that can be consistently replicated. Methodologies such… Continue Reading... "Agile Methodology and DevOps in a Cloud Environment"

Do I Need a Cloud Development Certification?
Common Cloud Certificates
Azure Fundamentals – This is the introduction to the Azure cloud platform. This certification focuses on the fundamentals you need to learn more and master the entire platform.
AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner
Starting on AWS and be complicated. This certification ensures that you have the necessary training to master Amazon’s massive number of different cloud services.
Google Certified Professional Cloud Architect
This certification is listed as the most lucrative. It is what you want to get if you are looking to make a lot of money working as a cloud developer. It provides the necessary foundations for mastering the Google Cloud Platform.

Let's talk about security...
What Is DevSecOps?
Developer Security Operations is similar, but now the focus is more on ensuring that your code is deployed safely. Many applications suffer from getting hacked and having private information leak onto the Internet. The cloud has made it a lot easier for hackers to roam free and wreak havoc on networked applications. This is where DevSecOps has come in. It focuses on building security into the foundation of your application. Instead of trying to secure your application later, it is built into the fabric of everything you do. That also includes your developer operations. It means using best practices like encryption in almost everything you do. It also means automating the way you secure your data and information. The rise of containers and microservices has also made it essential to understand how to secure these devices.
Why Is Security Important in the Developer Cloud?
Most services are now networked. It means that private information travels across the Internet, and bad actors could intercept it. Securing this information and your applications is a great way to ensure that your business stays strong and stable. It is also a great way of ensuring that your trade secrets and reputation don’t get put on the line. As time goes on, networked applications are only getting more popular. Having a set of principles to secure applications will only get more important with time.

What Are Common Cloud Tools
What is Azure?
Azure is Microsoft’s own implementation of a cloud platform. It has data centers around the world, meaning you can have a presence on every continent. Each region contains redundant data centers, meaning that your data won’t be lost because something happened at a physical data center. Microsoft is constantly adding new data centers to its portfolio, which means you will have significant options when deploying your code. There are also prebuilt solutions for Compute, AI, machine learning, databases, containers, DevOps, and even more. They have custom programs to help you get up to speed relatively quickly.
What Is GCP?
Like Azure, Google has its own implementation of a cloud development platform. The GCP or Google Cloud Platform is available in 25 regions and 76 zones. It means it is available in more than 200 countries worldwide. They are constantly improving and expanding this presence, and there are many solutions ready-made for whatever you are trying to implement. The main difference between Azure and GCP will mostly be in pricing, specific data center location, and application coverage. Google also has specific solutions that are custom-tuned to various industries. It means that you can get a prebuilt solution with off-the-shelf tools from Google without having to implement many of the services on your own.
What Is AWS?
The biggest player in this industry is Amazon. In fact, Amazon is a major innovator of cloud hosting. Many of the processes we have come to know today came from them. Amazon Web Services is the largest cloud provider in the world. It has one of the largest presences in the entire world as well. What separates Amazon from its competition is its massive array of custom servers that work as APIs. It means you can treat Amazon’s entire platform as a set of APIs that run your application. This is great because it lessens the time needed for you to get to market. It also means your application has infinite scalability when it is time for you to grow and develop. Many of the largest services people use today are implemented on Amazon Web Services.
