Cloud Study Jam: Google Cloud Essentials

McMaster University
Sat, Mar 20, 2:00 PM (EDT)

About this event

In this introductory-level Study Jam, you will get hands-on practice with Google Cloud’s fundamental tools and services. You will come in with little or no prior cloud knowledge and come out with a practical experience that you can apply to your first Google Cloud project. From writing Cloud Shell commands and deploying your first virtual machine, to running applications on Kubernetes Engine or with load balancing, Google Cloud Essentials will give you a prime introduction to the platform’s basic features.

This is a great chance to get hands-on experience that might come in handy when applying to internships and full-time positions! By attending this study jam you’ll also receive 30-days of free access to the entire Qwiklabs catalogue, so you can keep developing your skills at home. Complete all of the labs in the session’s quest, and you’ll earn an additional free month of access to Qwiklabs as well as a badge for your online profile!
