GCP Development

After completing the GCP Development path you’ll have the core hands-on knowledge and skills needed to to build, test, deploy and manage applications on GCP. You’ll start by learning the basics of how GCP works, what its foundational services are and how they fit together. You’ll get your python and javascript programming up to scratch and then dive deep into containers to get your Docker Associate and/or CKAD certification. From there you’ll take your development skills to the next level by preparing for your Professional Cloud Developer certification and going deeper with serverless, DevOps and app development.Whether you're a total beginner or looking to take your Google Cloud Developer skills to the next level, these flexible paths let you skip what you know and start at the appropriate lesson. The GCP paths also have a major focus on practical learning using hands-on labs, like all of ACG's learning.

Not sure where to start? We’ll guide you through the exact skills you need to gain to progress from novice to guru across a variety of cloud specialties.

These paths are flexible, so you can hop in where you’re comfortable and start at the appropriate level, whether you’re a total novice or looking to take your skills to the next level. And as with all ACG learning, there’s a major focus on gaining practical experience through Hands-on Labs.
