2019 Cloud Bootcamp:



Certification is the last thing on our mind.

Nilesh, Founder Cloud Genius
After the program, Cloud Genius certification can be a line at the bottom of your résumé or your LinkedIn profile…

or it can show up the way you walk into a room.

It can be something people perceive in the way you talk, in the way you make judgement calls, the way you deliver results. People take notice when you show up.

I’ve heard more than a few alumni tell me that their team treats them differently now, because they walk through the world differently.

These things can’t be captured on paper.

Whether you know it or not, these hard intangible skills along with core technical skills matter everyday to how people perceive you and how powerfully you show up and deliver results.

Founder, Cloud Genius

PS: If you are looking to put in the effort needed and be a Cloud Genius, you’ll have to work for it. There are no shortcuts. I’ll be here when you’re ready.

With already having some knowledge of cloud, the Cloud Genius Bootcamp took me to the next level. After each class session, I would think to myself “wow these technologies are powerful”. With me loving the technical side of things, the Bootcamp courses were very hands on, and I could not have asked for anything better. The best part of the labs was being able to simply revert my lab environment back to normal in the event mistakes were made. I recommend everyone in the IT industry to take this Bootcamp, whether if you are an expert in cloud or have zero knowledge.

Marine turns top notch DevOps Engineer

Alexander Ramos joined the US Marine Corps after high school where he served as an AV8B Avionics CDQAR for 5+ years. In 2014, Alex picked up his BS degree in EECS from UC Berkeley and started a new career as an HPC engineer after graduation. Alex recently participated in our Cloud Bootcamp and leveled up his career into a dream position as a top notch DevOps Engineer with AppDynamics. He made a promise to himself that he’d have a DevOps engineering role in the high tech silicon valley area within 6 months of finishing the course, and that’s exactly what he accomplished!

Mark A Ullberg

The Cloud Genius courses are very informative. Many quality examples are provided. Hands-on usage with detailed documentation and recorded sessions are wonderful aids in the learning process. Would recommend to anyone interested in better understanding the Cloud.

Murugan Subbiah

Thanks to Cloud Genius programs, I landed a gig working on the Microsoft cloud.

Toma Frost

Cloud Genius online library is a gold mine.

Alejandro Veloz

From simple to complex cloud implementations, this course offers the variety of awareness and understanding. The course provided an understanding of how to deploy virtualized environment on personal computing resources or cloud hosting services. The course also covered automated deployment schemes to implement software development environments in a way hobbyists and professionals can understand. The course had me engaged through videos and realtime interactions. Even though you may not be a developer, the course provides insight and curiosity for fully taking advantages of cloud technologies.

Brandon Wigington

Cloud Genius has the best instructors I have had the privilege of working with ever.

Shahul Hameed

Cloud Genius instructors went above and beyond course expectation in several areas by being available for one on one discussions and taught many non cloud topics students were interested with. Although Cloud Genius is a team of industry experts, they are very humble and thoughtful.

Michael Curry

Empowering…that is how I would describe this course. The material is presented in a logical and easy to digest format that anyone can pick up and follow. If you are interested in this area of work and want to start gaining immediate experience, do yourself a favor and take this course. I highly recommend you to be.a.cloudgeni.us. That is what you will become if you do!

David Rivera

Cloud Genius is amazing– lots of accelerated content with interactive instructor lead examples. Very knowledgeable instructor in the Cloud, Open Source & DevOps space. Coming from Microsoft for well over 16 years, I was blindsided by all the open source options (infrastructure, code, framework, deploy tools, etc), easy availability & global community support. It is a totally different approach from the MSFT world. I really learned a lot from instructor lead examples plus stepping through the module based write ups offline really helped me learn quite a lot on my own. The program provides a lot of valuable content with great attention to detail and hands on examples are impressive.

Anthony Jones

The challenge of the bootcamp was like being dropped in the ocean, with a group of strangers, just far enough from shore to put everyone way out of their comfort zones. This class was a combination of intimidating, constantly challenging, and a lot of work. But, with a lot of patience, prodding and encouragement, the instructor was able to lead us all safely back to shore, much stronger from our experience. In the end it was very rewarding and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in really understanding cloud computing.

Matthew Burrell

This program opened my eyes to all the things that I have been missing in my own Industry investigation and how expansive Open Source based Cloud services have been deployed across the Internet. The Cloud Genius classes were what I needed to complete my understanding on where the industry is going with Open Source based Cloud services.

Mark Myers

I completed the course and was very impressed with the amount of information, variety of platforms covered and the level of detail provided. I had very little Cloud and Linux experience and the instructor was sensitive to that fact, ensuring we understood concepts prior to moving to the next topic area and provided recordings for additional review. Cloud Genius provided detail and depth across a variety of Cloud providers, platforms, tools and solution offerings, which ensured extensive knowledge across required topic areas.

Pat Turkatte

I took these series of courses because I recognized that during my time being part of an enterprise level cloud operation that the state of cloud services had passed me by. Cloud Genius boot camp focuses on the current state of the business and is constantly updating the curriculum to expose the new popular technologies being used by the industry. Cloud Genius focuses on the needs of the students including content requested during the course. I see this course becoming a regular part of my continuing education to keep up with industry trends. Thanks for a great program!

Michael Zuckermann

Cloud Genius has enabled me to most efficiently evaluate professionals in the IT industry and allows me to quickly find the exact skill we are looking to hire. I strongly recommend Cloud Genius program to any one interested in enhancing their cloud skills.

Mukesh Shahi

Cloud Genius was a eyeopener for me to know how much is out there. The program covers various technologies used in cloud world and gave in depth practical use of it. The instructors had in depth experience in various technologies used in cloud and walked us from design thru having the product in function. There are lots of hands on example to give real sense of how it works. Program goes into concepts and gives the theoretical details of design and make use of open source, then jumps into practical and builds the product to show the application. Cloud Genius gives exposure to variety of platforms, options available in market, different tools and technologies, open source products to use which gives us extensive understanding of different topics. There are lots of topic that has been covered in detail with hands on example. Great program.

Arjun Bajracharya

Class discussions are video recorded and made available offline for self review. That is really great since some of us can’t make a few of the sessions.

Sreenivas Sama

Strongly recommend this program for any IT employees (Developers, Architects, Programmers, Operation and Prod Support teams). The course covers the state-of-art topics in cloud computing and the instructors makes the classes very interesting with live examples, class exercises, videos and of course humor.

Ted Miroulis

Originally not sure what to expect from this real-time interactive (instructor led) experience, I ended up very impressed and with exceeded expectations overall. The exceptional leveraging of multiple multimedia, collaborative, and cloud-based tools conveyed each lesson very clearly. Student and instructor interaction and information sharing was highly collaborative (mostly real-time during class, but also off-line as warranted). The well-organized, well sequenced and very relevant curriculum (including relevant exercises) served as a solid foundation to the interaction.

Brad Schaefbauer

This was all new to me. I needed to get a complete understanding of Cloud technology in a very short time. Cloud Genius is exactly what I needed. The live lectures are recorded so you can go over in detail the material until you feel comfortable. The instructor is available to help you as needed just about everyday. I now have a great understanding of Cloud and the technologies that are associated with it. This made for an excellent transition for me into cloud design and integration.

Nicu Parente

All of the teaching are “Real World Cases” which is huge.

Alexander R Ramos

Cloud Genius is the best technical certification program I have ever been a part of. Nilesh Londhe’s decades of experience shines in a curriculum benefiting aspiring new as well as already experienced cloud technologists. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to acquire the knowledge and proper tools to burst into the cloud!

Ahren Swett

Instructors are helpful and very considerate when we say we don’t get it. Really important!
