What you will need

  • Since this is a professional level course, the following Linux Academy courses are considered to be firm prerequisites (or at least equivalent knowledge): - Google Cloud Essentials - Google Cloud Certified Associated Cloud Engineer - Google Cloud Security Essentials While not required, the following courses are VERY highly recommended topical deep dives on various compute platforms on Google Cloud: - Google App Engine Deep Dive - Google Kubernetes Engine Deep Dive - Google Cloud Functions Deep Dive We will cover primary exam topics in the above services, but this course will not be an extensive 'how-to' on them and will assume that you've used them before. Additionally, Google's perspective is that you have had previous experience using Google Cloud Platform before attempting the exam, and their exam questions will reflect this assumption. Making extensive use of the hands on labs in this course and the GCP Cloud Playground will help, but be aware that hands on experience is assumed.

What are Hands-on Labs

What's the difference between theoretical knowledge and real skills? Practical real-world experience. That's where Hands-on Labs come in! Hands-on Labs are guided, interactive experiences that help you learn and practice real-world scenarios in real cloud environments. Hands-on Labs are seamlessly integrated in courses, so you can learn by doing.
