You’ve heard Marc Andreessen say “Software Is Eating The World.” Specifically, it is the ecosystem of Open Source software that is chewing it up, swallowing it and digesting it all. Open source has the force of community behind it and that is hard to beat. Even traditional proprietary software companies (yes, I used to work at Microsoft) are embracing openness and open sourcing their crown jewels. Microsoft has recently joined the Linux Foundation. It is a pragmatic business decision for them.

Our team at Cloud Genius has always focused on vendor neutrality, open source, and practical hands on learning experiences that has resulted in us getting recognized among the most valuable Cloud Computing certifications by the CIO magazine!

Cloud Genius is the smartest route for a career in the cloud. You have arrived at the right place. Go ahead… explore, participate, collaborate… and build your future.
