For the second year in a row, cloud and distributed computing led LinkedIn's annual list of the skills employers need most in candidates, outpacing statistical analysis and data mining. When I published the world's 1st Doctoral Dissertation on Cloud Computing in 2011, I envisioned cloud computing revolutionizing the enterprise. The Cloud Computing MicroMasters is an efficient and targeted way for those interested in this career path to obtain the foundational knowledge and skills in the growing cloud computing field.
