You will be able to get hands-on experience with Docker, Kubernetes and Scientific Data Processing, which will earn you additional badges. Registered attendees will get free access to Cloud Labs content (a $70+ value). Completion will require mandatory attendance at this "prep" session followed by 2-8 hours of self-study. GCP ESSENTIALS:

Mobile Site Certification

Then take a Google-provided certification exam (90 minutes, multiple choice) to validate your knowledge.

Successful completion of the exam gives you a professional accreditation from Google that shows you have proficiency in basic and advanced aspects of mobile website design and development. The credential will be listed on a Google Partners page and also provided as a printable certificate.
