About the course

In this course, we explore using Google Cloud Deployment Manager to orchestrate infrastructure needs on GCP.

In the first section, we explore the top 3 skills to have when getting started deploying cloud infrastructure using code. We cover APIs (focusing on Google Cloud APIs), review using Google Cloud Shell to work with Deployment Manager APIs, and discuss using Git for version management and accessing remote repositories.

In the second section, we review and deploy multiple Deployment Manager templates. Then, you’ll get hands-on experience as you clone and deploy files, as well as update the startup script of running VM instances. (There’s no coding required, as you have the option to use pre-defined templates.)

Finally, we share more Deployment Manager templates and examples for Google Cloud, to help you build your next GCP environment using Infrastructure as Code practices

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.
