About the course

Welcome to the Google Cloud CI/CD Pipelines course. This course is the third in the Google Professional Cloud DevOps Engineer certification path. This course goes into detail on what is continuous integration/delivery/deployment and how to implement an automated CI/CD pipeline using Google Cloud services.

In this course, we start by establishing a beginner-friendly, high-level framework of what exactly CI/CD is and how it relates to our earlier course on SRE principles. We go in to a hands-on deep dive of each step of the CI/CD process as we learn about Google Cloud’s tools to support a containerized pipeline and build it piece-by-piece. We will conclude with a full end-to-end pipeline that automatically deploys new versions of our application to Google Kubernetes Engine.

Along the way, we recap and provide a different perspective on the topics covered.


Prerequisites:

We recommend you have at least the Associate Cloud Engineer-level certification (or equivalent knowledge) before attempting this course. You also need to be comfortable using Git for application development, working with Docker containers, and navigating Kubernetes, as we will be using all three extensively in this course.
