IMPORTANT UPDATE: We are reaching out to let you know that the IBM Microservices Specialization will be removed from Coursera on January 13, 2020. If you are interested in earning a Specialization Certificate, you will need to complete all 4 courses of the Specialization by January 12, 2020.

Separately, if you are interested in earning Course Certificate for this course, please upgrade or apply for Financial Aid by January 12, 2020, if you have not already done so. If you are a Coursera for Business learner, you can continue to use your sponsored credit. In order to earn a Course Certificate, you will need to complete all graded assignments by April 12, 2020. After that point, no new assignment submissions will be accepted for Certificate credit.

Cloud computing is evolving at a fast pace, and if you want to succeed in IT, you have to keep up. What was considered “cutting edge” a few months ago, might be old news by now. We want to provide only the best possible experience with the latest technology to our learners, and that is why we believe it is necessary to retire this Specialization, and recommend other resources for you to continue your learning. We appreciate you taking the time to learn with us, and hope that will continue. Here are some resources for further study:
