About this event

• What we'll do
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 Google Compute Engine, which will earn you additional badges.

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

Bring a laptop with the latest versions of the popular Internet browsers installed. For the best experience, make sure your laptop has Firefox or Chrome installed.

Everyone who attends the Study Jam gets a free 1-month pass to Qwiklabs. If Cloud Study Jam attendees earn the GCP Essentials badge within that first month, they will get another free 1-month pass to use any way they choose. Those who have earned the GCP Essentials badge within the first month will receive extra second campaign link with an additional 30-days pass benefit.

There will be food and drinks for the evening.
