Q: What is the Ooggi platform about?
A: The Ooggi platform is focused on accelerating learning around IT technologies.
By focusing on real life end-to-end challenges in the areas of architectural design, development and system operations, the practitioner is forced to apply a wide range of skills that promote faster learning and provide practical experience.
Challenges are presented in a real life context with the relevant requirements/specification and you (the IT hero), design and build solutions that are then evaluated by the automated challenge test suite.
Q: What if I’m not sure how to tackle a challenge?
A: We highly recommend attending one of the challenge workshops.
The workshop session will allow you to:
- Learn more about the technologies involved
- Brainstorm and discuss with the advisor and other participants
- Validate your ideas
- Put together a solution draft
- Get a challenge code for the solution submission
After the workshop session, you’ll be ready to submit your first solution draft.
Q: How do I get certified?
A: In order to receive a certification, one needs to collect the necessary amount of points in the relevant track.
Once you collect the necessary amount by solving challenges you’ll become certified as a Cloud Engineer or Cloud Architect.
For example, in order to unlock the “Level 1 – Cloud Engineer” certification, one required 20 points.
Good luck! 😉
