Cloud Study Jam
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. Registered attendees will get free access to Cloud Labs content (a $70+ value). Completion will require mandatory attendance at this "prep" session followed by 2-8 hours of self-study. GCP ESSENTIALS:
1. Creating a Virtual Machine
2. Provision Services with Cloud Launcher
3. Creating a Persistent Disk (Activity Tracking)

1. Intro to Docker
2. Scientific Data Processing lab

Mobile Site Certification
Learn about key technologies like mobile speed, PWA, AMP and web payments that are critical to developing and deploying modern mobile web sites and apps. Review require materials (takes 3-4 hours). Then take a Google-provided certification exam (90 minutes, multiple choice) to validate your knowledge.

Successful completion of the exam gives you a professional accreditation from Google that shows you have proficiency in basic and advanced aspects of mobile website design and development. The credential will be listed on a Google Partners page and also provided as a printable certificate.
