Join a community of like-minded developers and explore the latest Google Cloud technologies as a team.
Join us for our upcoming Cloud Study Jam and get hands-on experience with GCP Essentials.
After the Study Jam, you’ll receive 30-days free access to the entire Qwiklabs catalogue, so you can keep developing your skills at home. Complete all of the labs in the session’s quest, and you’ll earn an additional free month of access to Qwiklabs as well as a badge for your online profile.
In this introductory-level quest, you will get hands-on practice with the Google Cloud Platform’s fundamental tools and services. GCP Essentials is the recommended first Quest for the Google Cloud learner—you will come in with little or no prior cloud knowledge, and come out with practical experience that you can apply to your first GCP project. From writing Cloud Shell commands and deploying your first virtual machine, to running applications on Kubernetes Engine or with load balancing, GCP Essentials is a prime introduction to the platform’s basic features.
This Quest assumes little to no prior knowledge in cloud computing or with the Google Cloud Platform. It is expected that students have an information technology or computing background, and have some hands-on familiarity with administering computing systems.
Bring a laptop! The course 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. Don’t forget your charger. Windows/Linux/Mac would all be fine.
