How UAE schools are preparing students for the future
K12 schools in the UAE are slowly becoming great examples of schools that are developing transferable skills and building character among students.These institutions are supported by the UAE government, which has reportedly allocated Dh 5 billion to invest in state-of-the-art infrastructure for schools over the next six years, according to the Khaleej Times. The UAE Cabinet, chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, recently reviewed progress of the ‘Emirati School Model’.This model is being implemented in 800 public and private schools across the UAE to “prepare generations capable of leading the future of the UAE”.The aim is to address the needs of the job market  “through a modern curriculum that offers different educational fields”, as well as focusing on recreational activities to ensure every area of student development is given fair attention. Reflecting this, through the use of advanced technology and innovative teaching methods, UAE schools are fostering a learning environment that engages students and encourages them to think outside the box. The UAE government is also making strides for the development of new modern vocational courses to attract more Emirati students as a part of the Emiratisation strategy. Plus, the government is specifically focusing on developing more institutes for vocational training in order to fulfill the demand for skilled labor from industries, which is part of their mission for Vision 2021 and other plans focused on diversifying the economy.

D2iQ releases Conductor to deliver interactive courses and training on actual Kubernetes

D2iQ | July 09, 2020

D2iQ, the leading provider of enterprise-grade cloud platforms that power smarter Day 2 operations, today announced the release of Conductor, a new interactive learning platform that enables enterprises to access hands-on cloud native courses and training. With Conductor, developers and operators can now learn Kubernetes on actual clusters right from their web browser, increasing the team's capability and maximizing resource utilization.According to a recent D2iQ-sponsored survey with Vanson Bourne, only 23% of organizations believe they have the talent required to successfully complete their cloud native journey. As enterprises move from legacy to cloud native applications, the demand for Kubernetes has significantly increased. However, once moving closer to production and Day 2 operations, they are met with the complexity involved in migrating to a complete Kubernetes environment while also struggling to keep pace with the skills required to maintain it.Conductor addresses the growing skill gap through hands-on courses and labs that are curated by CNCF-certified engineers and trainers and focused on Kubernetes and the entire cloud native lifecycle, including containerization, CI/CD, observability and security. Through the Conductor Admin interface, administrators can track learner proficiency and ensure training is completed before developers and operators are allowed to interact with the organization's production environment.
