StrongLoop Introduces Partner Program, Node.js Training & Certification

StrongLoop Partners Help Deliver Node.js Technology Solutions, Training and Certification to Enable True Enterprise Mobility

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2014) - StrongLoop, the leading provider of solutions for Node.js, today introduced its new partner program to accelerate the delivery of StrongLoop and Node technologies to individual developers and the enterprise. Node continues to gain popularity for the creation of "front edge" APIs that enable the delivery of true enterprise mobility. StrongLoop's technology, reseller, integration and training partners are helping solidify the rapidly growing ecosystem around this trend with StrongLoop technologies such as the LoopBack API server and StrongOps, the DevOps service for Node. StrongLoop also today announced its training and certification program so that partners can now deliver one-on-one Node training worldwide to developers, as well as private, on-premise training for enterprise development teams interested in accelerating their Node skills.

StrongLoop Certified Node Developer

Available immediately, the StrongLoop Certified Node Developer (SCND) certification provides Node.js developers the opportunity to distinguish themselves by validating their Node knowledge and skills to develop web and mobile applications. The certification program helps project managers identify and recruit skilled individuals to their Node application development teams. "The SCND certification was developed by Node core developers to ensure its recipients can demonstrate a strong level of proficiency," said Issac Roth, StrongLoop CEO. "The certification is priced low enough to make it very appealing for developers to add to their resumes. For managers looking to hire developers with Node expertise, the SCND certification means they can hire with confidence." Experienced Node developers are highly sought after and those with the right skills can use their certification to validate and market themselves to new opportunities. Please visit the StrongLoop Certification page for details.

Node.js Training

Multi-day public Node training sessions delivered by StrongLoop partners OlinData and YLD are also available today. "OlinData provides public and private Node training around the world, developed through our partnership with StrongLoop," said Walter Heck, CEO of OlinData "As the largest corporate contributor to the upcoming Node v0.12 release, StrongLoop proved to be an invaluable resource for us in developing this highly targeted and specialized Node training program." A complete schedule of upcoming training dates in London, New York, India, Kuala Lumpur and Manila is available on the StrongLoop Events page.

Technology and Integration Partners

Node and StrongLoop products are being used today at small and large companies to deliver exciting mobile experiences and API projects accessing heterogeneous data sources. StrongLoop partners are helping deliver these projects with platform support, technical integration, consulting and professional services. StrongLoop partners include Rackspace, Red Hat OpenShift, Heroku, MongoDB, Vizuri and appendTo. "Mobile developers want technology that frees them to focus on the front-end," said Rackspace CTO John Engates. "StrongLoop's availability on the Rackspace Cloud means developers can reap the benefits of an API server and a DevOps console, with the scalability and power of the cloud."
