About this event

Cloud Study Jam is a hands-on workshop that will take place on 26 August 2019 at 19:00 in Nuremberg, Germany. At the jam the participants can learn the basics of the cloud computing using the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Our ambitious goal is to complete the "GCP Essentials" quest (, which consists of 5 hands-on labs, using the QwikLabs learning platform. During the workshop we'll try to complete the first 3 labs of the quest and the last 2 labs can be completed by every participant on their own after the workshop.

All workshop participants will be provided with enough credits to complete the quest AND one FREE month of full access to the QwikLabs learning platform, where also many other labs are available. Upon successful completion of the "GCP Essentials" quest you will earn a BADGE and one more FREE month of access to QwikLabs will be enabled.

Instruction languages: English or German.
