Come get some hands on experience with Google Cloud in the first of our labs!

About this event

• What we'll do
Want to get started on the Google Cloud, but don't know where to begin?

Join us for our Cloud Study Jam! Together we'll work through three Google Cloud Platform Essentials labs, then you will get free access to the next quest so you can finish this series of labs at home to get a Google-hosted badge for your online profile. You will be able to get hands-on experience with Docker, Kubernetes and Scientific Data Processing, which will earn you additional badges.

Join this meetup to get official Google training, a $70+ value, free of charge.
Bring a laptop (PC, Mac or Chromebook)! The labs will run on all of the latest versions of the popular browsers. For the best experience, make sure your laptop has Firefox or Chrome installed.

6:00pm-7:30pm: Three Google Cloud Platform Essentials labs
7:30pm-8:30pm: Introduction to Docker or Scientific Data Processing lab with Google Cloud
8:30pm: Meeting wrap-up
