About this event

Sometimes you need to connect to services in an automated way and that is one of the use cases for APIs (Application Programming Interfaces).  This week we're learning the basics of APIs and using the Google Cloud Vision, Natural Language, and Translation APIs hands-on.

This week's hands-on labs:

Introduction to APIs in Google

This lab will teach you about the architecture and basic functioning of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This will be supplemented with hands-on practice, where you will configure and run Cloud Storage API methods in Cloud Shell.

Extract, Analyze, and Translate Text from Images with the Cloud ML APIs

In this lab you’ll combine the Cloud Vision, Natural Language, and Translation APIs to capture text strings from images, recognize characters, and analyze and translate the text strings into other languages.

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 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!
