About this event

Want to get started on the Google Cloud, but don't know where to begin?

Join us for our Cloud Study Jam! Together we'll work through three Google Cloud Platform Essentials labs, then you will get free access to the next quest so you can finish this series of labs at home to get a Google-hosted badge for your online profile. You will be able to get hands-on experience with Docker, Kubernetes and Scientific Data Processing, which will earn you additional badges.

Join this meetup to get official Google training, a $70+ value, free of charge.

Bring a laptop (PC, Mac or Chromebook)! The labs 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.

At the event we’ll use a tool called “Qwiklabs,” a Google training product. If you have used Qwiklabs before, great! Make sure you know your password. If you have never used Qwiklabs before, save time by creating an account for yourself prior to the class at: (creating an account is free). At the event we will give you a link that gives you one month of free Qwiklabs access.

Note: The # of attendees is initially limited but we we get people on the waiting list then we may still be able to get more GCP training accounts. We'll let you know.
