What is a Cloud Hero?
Community members from all around the globe will have an opportunity to participate in the Hands-on Labs experience @ Next ‘19. We will participate in one of the Cloud Hero Sessions and play the Cloud Hero game in the same platform, against players at the event.
What does a participant do?
There will be 12 GCP challenges with a time limit of 60 minutes each. During the 90 minutes of the Cloud Hero sessions, players need to play through it as fast as they can to earn points and win the session.
The Cloud Hero lab challenges you to build an end-to-end application deployment experience using multiple GCP services, from GCS to GKE and Cloud Build. By the end of this lab you will have a complete CI/CD pipeline for automatically building and deploying an application on the Google Cloud.
*** UPDATES ***
All Cloud Hero players will have a special badge on Qwiklabs and best players will be recognized globally.
All participants will receive 50 Qwiklabs credits. The first three players to complete the challenge will receive an additional 100 Qwiklabs credits.
