Google Cloud Platform Boot Camp

SS Course: 3000589

Course Overview


Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is the public cloud offering from Google, and it's rapidly becoming more and more important for developers to learn about. Just using GCP's core services will give you everything you need to begin your journey to the cloud. You can start with GCP's infrastructure as a service (IaaS), creating virtual machines with the resources you need.

GCP also includes a PaaS offering for Kubernetes, which involves containers and orchestrators.
