Introducing the AWS Cloud Architect Nanodegree Program from Udacity

Udacity is excited to introduce the newest addition to our School of Cloud Computing: the AWS Cloud Architect Nanodegree program

This program is extremely relevant for anyone working in tech right now given that current projections state the public cloud service market will reach over $600 billion by 2023, with Amazon owning over 30% of the current market. 

Getting a job title with buzzwords like “AWS” and “cloud” seems like it might be pretty profitable and cloud architects are in high demand. This is an exciting role perfect for anyone who wants to be at the forefront of an organization’s public cloud strategy.

AI for Healthcare Virtual Conference: Thought Leaders Discuss the Fight Against COVID-19

COVID-19 has changed our collective understanding of how viruses spread. As the pandemic hits its peak in the United States — with 762,690 people infected and 40,548 deaths in mid-April — many professionals in the medical community are still trying to contain and understand the transmission.

The CDC and the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases have uncovered data about how COVID-19 spreads, but there’s still much to learn.
