In this introductory-level quest, you will get hands-on practice with the Google Cloud Platform’s fundamental tools and services. GCP Essentials is the recommended first Quest for the Google Cloud learner—you will come in with little or no prior cloud knowledge, and come out with practical experience that you can apply to your first GCP project. From writing Cloud Shell commands and deploying your first virtual machine, to running applications on Kubernetes Engine or with load balancing, GCP Essentials is a prime introduction to the platform’s basic features. 1-minute videos walk you through key concepts for each lab.
This Quest of hands-on labs demonstrates the power of integrating Google Cloud Platform services and tools with G Suite applications. With integration technologies such as App Script and the Clasp Command Line environment, you will create and publish web apps and add-ons for G Suite products: Sheets, Docs, Forms, and Slides. With App Maker you will build a ready-to-use app that has a Google Cloud SQL Database, Google Maps integration, and a Mobile Responsive Design. Other labs create direct connections to GCP data sources-- using the BigQuery API, Sheets, and Slides to collect, analyze and present data.
In this introductory-level quest, you will learn the fundamentals of developing and deploying applications on the Google Cloud Platform. You will get hands-on experience with the Google App Engine framework by launching applications written in languages like Python, Ruby, and Java (just to name a few). You will see first-hand how straightforward and powerful GCP application frameworks are, and how easily they integrate with GCP database, data-loss prevention, and security services.
Cloud SQL is a fully managed database service that stands out from its peers due to high performance, seamless integration, and impressive scalability. In this fundamental-level quest, you will receive hands-on practice with the basics of Cloud SQL and quickly progress to advanced features, which you will apply to production frameworks and application environments. From creating instances and querying data with SQL, to building Deployment Manager scripts and highly available databases that run on GKE containers, Cloud SQL will give you the knowledge and experience needed so you can start integrating this service right away.
The Google Cloud Platform is committed to supporting Windows workloads in its frameworks and services. In this advanced-level quest, you will get hands you hands-on practice running many of the popular Windows services in GCP. For example, you will learn how to instantiate Microsoft SQL databases, cloud tools for Powershell, and Microsoft’s ASP.net (web app framework) on Google Cloud Platform frameworks.
This quest is designed to teach you how to apply AWS Identity and Access Management, in concert with several other AWS Services, to address real-world application and service security management scenarios.
Learn how to deploy and administer databases running on Microsoft Windows Server in Amazon EC2 and Amazon RDS.
Record linking is the task of identifying similar or duplicated records in a database and forming a consolidated set. You will learn the process of finding similar objects in a small dataset to explain the nuances of the problem at hand.
Create a Google Cloud SQL MySQL instance and perform SQL operations using Google Cloud Platform Console and mysql client. Watch this short video, Manage PostgreSQL and MySQL Databases Easily with Cloud SQL.
In this hands-on lab you'll learn how to use Google Cloud Platform's Marketplace to quickly get started with common operating systems, web frameworks, and databases. Watch the short preview Provision Services with GCP Marketplace, GCP Essentials.
