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 using APIs by using the Google Cloud Vision and Natural Language APIs hands-on.

This week's hands-on labs:

Entity and Sentiment Analysis with the Natural Language API

The Cloud Natural Language API lets you extract entities, and perform sentiment and syntactic analysis on a block of text. In this hands-on lab you’ll learn how to extract entities and sentiment from text using the Cloud Natural Language API.

Awwvision: Cloud Vision API from a Kubernetes Cluster

This hands-on lab uses Kubernetes and Cloud Vision API to create an example of how to use the Vision API to classify (label) images from Reddit’s /r/aww subreddit and display the labelled results in a web app.

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!
