More than half of the Fortune 500 relies on Cloud Foundry for developing their cloud applications, and the recent announcement of their new Cloud Foundry Certified Developer program (CFCD) is big news for all of those companies.

The Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is no longer just a promising idea. At the Summit, top-flight enterprises such as Comcast, AllState, and SAP are moving their application development to Cloud Foundry, which is also now available on the Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.

…CFCD helps developers set themselves apart whether they’re looking for a first job or upgrading their current role. The program certifies programmers across all certified Cloud Foundry distributions including Atos Cloud Foundry, Huawei FusionStage, IBM Bluemix Cloud Foundry, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, SAP Cloud Platform, and Swisscom Application Cloud.

While this provides another tool for evaluating tech talent in the hiring process to ensure the applicant is capable of meeting your organization’s needs, it also allows companies to have another tool to better train their engineers. This will lead to improved performance in developing cloud applications which have been proven to be the future of software businesses in most industries.
