Together with A Cloud Guru Founders Sam and Ryan Kroonenburg, I am thrilled to announce that today A Cloud Guru has acquired Linux Academy, and we are joining forces to teach the world to cloud with the largest and most effective cloud computing training library in the world. The combined organization now represents THE school for the future of IT: hands-on, practical, and updated daily as technology changes.
We recognize that our mission to teach the world to cloud does not just start with the novice learner or end with the most advanced engineer, but is a mission that meets customers where they are at and enables them to be successful at their particular stage in their journey. By bringing together our complementary strengths and increasing investment in content innovation, customers and partners will have a single partner to keep pace with the rapid evolution of cloud technology.
What does this mean for you?
Support and service for all Linux Academy content and products is continuing uninterrupted, and your primary point of contact remains the same.
Over the next year, we will create a seamless learnerís journey across both platforms, and both A Cloud Guru and Linux Academy students will benefit from having access to a combined catalog of our courses, broad and deep hands-on learning, skill assessments, and the many educational features our platforms have to offer.
Specifically, you will benefit from:
- A Cloud Guru's additional catalog of courses which are highly engaging and effective for early cloud adopters
- A Cloud Guru's educational features and career learning paths that drive high efficiency in obtaining certifications, including skills assessment, certification accelerator and exam simulator
- Robust B2B administration features including organizational dashboards, reporting, and API integration
- An even larger community of learners that supports and shares best practices for ongoing education
While I will be stepping out of the day-to-day operations of the business, I will act as a special advisor to A Cloud Guru CEO Sam Kroonenburg, and as Iíve gotten to know him over the last few months, Iím confident in the hands that you are in.
I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for putting your trust in Linux Academy over the last 8 years and helping us become what we are today.
