Developing mobile cloud-based applications

Cloud, mobile and IoT are driving the need for a new development approach. This two-day course introduces the Unicorn Application Framework with practical examples from the entire development lifecycle.

About this course

Wide adoption of cloud computing and the proliferation of mobile and IoT devices has created a situation where existing software development frameworks no longer support the requirements of modern enterprise applications. This rapidly evolving situation is creating demand for new frameworks that facilitate the DevOps approach and support continuous delivery of cloud-based applications using containerized microservices.

In this course, we first discuss the challenges that developers of enterprise applications face today and then describe the Unicorn Application Framework (UAF) and its key components. UAF is a suite of closely integrated frameworks that address a comprehensive range of requirements of modern mobile cloud-based applications over the entire systems development life-cycle. The course includes practical demonstrations of cloud applications that illustrate the capabilities of the UAF, including scenarios involving the integration of IoT devices.
