About this event

Google Cloud Study Jam

The Detroit Google Developers is excited to host our first ever Google Cloud Study Jam!

What is a Google Cloud Study Jam?
Cloud Study Jams are Google sponsored community-run study groups to learn more about Cloud Computing and using Google’s Cloud offerings. Google provides each attendee access to QwikLabs (online course training) during the Study Jam to work through and learn about cloud computing as well as Google Cloud offerings. A Study Jam session differs from our typical monthly presentations that the Detroit Google Developers Group hosts. Study jams are self-paced sessions where a bunch of developers meet and work through some exercises and courses.

What will you learn?
Specifically you will learn the fundamentals of the Google Cloud Platform, how to run containers on it and how to use the platform for data engineering. You will get free access to the labs ($70+ value). No need to create a Google Cloud Platform account or register with a credit card. More details below:
• You will learn how to some of the Google Cloud offerings in a self-paced course.
• Learn how to set up development and production environments in the Cloud.
• Learn how Docker and Kubernetes work, or learn how to process Big Data in the Cloud.
• Get access to, a Google training tool, free of charge (a $70+ value).
• Get Google-hosted badges like this for their online profiles, to show potential employers what they know about Cloud computing.

*****PLEASE NOTE: Please bring your own laptop computer. We can not provide computers to work through the labs with. Free Wifi will be available. *****
