VMWare has launched a project-based learning platform that provides the Spring community with the knowledge and experience necessary to stay ahead of the curve.

In surveying Spring developers about what they look for in educational material, they responded with tutorials, guides, sample code, how-to articles, reference architectures and patterns.

Surely, there are many courses, blogs and tutorials on Spring develepment, but who knows better than the makers themselves, that is VMWare.

Spring Academy, created by the stewards of the Spring framework, aims to introduce students to the ins and outs of the framework and provide the things that matter to further their careers like preparing for the official Spring Certified Professional exam. The instructors of the Academy work for VMware Tanzu Labs and that includes renowned Dev advocate Josh Long.


The topics of the courses available range from Java to RESTful services, to Databases and Testing. In detail :

  • Java
  • REST
  • Security
  • Database
  • Testing
  • Deployment
  • Observability
  • Modernization
  • Tooling

Mastering all of these essential topics makes for a well rounded developer.

For the time being there's four courses available, the two address beginners and the other two Intermediates:

  • Introduction to the Spring Professional Learning Path
  • Building a REST API with Spring Boot
  • Spring Framework Essentials
  • Spring Boot

There are two ways to join the Academy. You can start for free , and or go pro. The pro edition unlocks access to exclusive content, video lessons, and hands-on labs, plus a voucher for the Spring Certified Professional exam.

For instance the first two from the list above are offered for free, while the latter two are only available in the Pro edition. Spring Academy Pro costs $299/year.
