About this event

Kubernetes is taking over across all the major clouds. Google Cloud has a sophisticated Kubernetes solution called Kubernetes Engine, which was developed based on their years of experience running containerized workloads.  Also this week we'll use Let's Encrypt for an interesting double topic night.

This week's hands-on labs:

Running a MongoDB Database in Kubernetes with StatefulSets

Containers are becoming a popular way to run and scale applications across multiple cloud providers or on both cloud and on-premise hardware. This lab provides a quick introduction to running a MongoDB database on Kubernetes Engine using Docker.

Deploy a Web App on GKE with HTTPS Redirect using Lets Encrypt

This lab shows you how to deploy a web app with a browser-trusted TLS certificate. You also deploy an HTTPS redirect on GKE using Let's Encrypt, NGINX Ingress, and Cloud Endpoints.

You'll work through Google Cloud labs to get hands-on experience and when you complete each whole quest, you earn a badge for your LinkedIn!

We're learning and sharing Google Cloud skills weekly hands-on events using Qwiklabs to help you learn more about Cloud Computing and running your projects on Google servers in the cloud.

Invite a friend who could benefit, and we'll be happy to help them also get access to qwiklabs.com and to help them get started

Don't miss out on the fun on Wednesdays as we learn cloud computing skills, one week at a time, with a goal of helping you level up!
