Looking forward to the next course.

Looking forward to explore more on this track.

Looking forward for the other lessons as well.

los servicios

Videos added more value to the course content good Sin duda alguna, el curso está estructurado de forma que , aún estando en inglés, se obtiene una visión general de los servicios básicos.

Los laboratorios permiten tener una idea general de la potencialidad de los servicios y herramientas básicas de uso.

Estupendo curso de iniciación con prácticas al mundo de Google Cloud, estupendo para entender qué es Cloud, qué servicios ofrece, cuánto cuestan los servicios y cómo obtener el mejor rendimiento de estos servicios.

Me gustó mucho, haría una comparativa todavia mas sustancial en los servicios de bases de datos y de interconexión, con ejemplos más claros.

En general esta muy bien, algun laboratorio convendría adaptarlo a las últimas actualizaciones de los servicios de google cloud, pero en general se sigue muy bien Nice training.

Buen curso, para entender los servicios de google cloud plataform This has been an eye opening course into cloud computing particularly that of Google platform.
