January 24, 2019 / CHRIS O'BRIEN
Google Cloud today announced an array of initiatives aimed at closing a shortfall in developers with the skills for cloud-based computing.In a blog post, Rochana Golani, director of Google Cloud Learning and Enablement, said the issue must be urgently addressed if companies are going to be successful in transitioning their computing to cloud-based environments. The increase in cloud adoption has resulted in a corresponding increase in the need for workers skilled in cloud technologies,” she wrote. “Yet this workforce is not easy to come by.”Cloud-native computing continues to gain traction among businesses and developers. But Golani pointed to a recent survey by OpsRamp in which 94 percent of IT managers said they were having a tough time finding enough talent.
