google cloud platform

Good course.Unfortunately a lot of the content at the beginning overlaps with the first course (Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure) in this specialization (Architecting with Google Cloud Platform).Further the sometimes very short video clips (seconds) are annoying and break my learning workflow, I prefer a less 'chopped' up content.Overall good course, learned quite a bit of concepts.

The slides are not shared, which makes it hard to review and prepare for the exam after finishing the course Contains some really useful insights and techniques for creating, configuring and managing resources on Google Cloud Platform.

Very well created course for GCP, suits generally anyone that has interest with and wanted to explore Google Cloud Platform.Content were built in smaller bits, helps for easier digestion and understanding.The qwiklab sessions are great as well, to give a hands on for the related course content.

This course includes fundamental labs to understand instances, virtual machines, and storage in the Google Cloud Platform The QwikLabs experience was awesome.

Quite simple to follow and provides good understanding of Google computing engine and Storage services Good explanation of Compute Engine and Virtual Networking on Google Cloud Platform.

GCP have a error en region europe-west2 zone c, This error, I not finish the lab The Labs sessions are good with proper guidance Some instructions are not accurate, it might create confussion, take a look at the last exercise, you need to specify sudo to run the commands instead of just copy and paste the commands as it said An excellent introduction to the Google Cloud Platform Good placew to start practical hands on lab work running VMs and connecting to them.

step by step

Itwasagoodoverview Excellent step by step input with respect to CGP Foundation A great into the basics of GCP, if you have any kind of sys-admin or DevOps background you should find all the concepts fairly easy to pick up and quite familiar.

I folled this step by step but, when I have to use the command "terraform apply" even if the file was exactly how its explain in the Demo's Lab, I had an error with this json section: resource "google_compute_network" "mynetwork" { name = "mynetwork" auto_create_subnetworks = true } The error was an invalid JSON input, I aready send an email with this error, in January 3rd, but I don't have anwser yet.Even with that error, I recomended this Lab: I have so much fun with the videos and the others Labs great Nice Course, but could be better by showing VM Migration, Start-Up Scripts with VM boot and Application Upgrade Example on VM with BLUE/GREEN or Zero Downtime Approach.Thanks for all the wonderful knowledge.

Excellent Cool Thank you Excellent coverage of basic concept and step by step labs to execute the commands and really understand the concepts in details.

Excellent course to start with, step by step videos with handson lab.

good Excellent Course good and interesting This Course is structured and easy to understand step by step.

A Step By Step learning experience.

The thing I liked most is the structure of the labs: they allow you to understand the platform step by step as well as encouraging to play with it by giving extra time (they all can be restarted, I know, but there it is as a default option).

minecraft server

An the last lab, "Minecraft server" loses focus of the concepts of GCP a little bit.

I really liked the labs Very complete introduction about GCP network and VM SuperB, especially minecraft server.

Very Good Organization of Video Lectures and Hands On sessions Good to see a real world example in the lab with so many elements coming together to deploy a minecraft server instance.

Very Engaging and Fun Great Completely Awesome Some of the quick labs were too short and didn't feel very satisfactory but everything came together in the minecraft server set-up.

Real minecraft server deployment was pretty nifty.

I would love to have the slides vs downloading the whole video Good Content with respect to Core Foundation Services great course lovely and informative course I like the lab that exam, how to create a minecraft server.

real world

I found the real world-ish examples to be very usefull.

Good Excellent Excellent course Great Course, ideally, i would suggest this as starting point for completing this specialisation (Architecting with GCP) as it goes deeper into each concept very well and labs and examples are so well documented and explained that you truly get feel of setting it up in real world.

Labs are very useful in understanding the concepts from real world examples t There are some subtitles not match the video.

There are no tips and tricks or real world examples topics when explaining something.

core infrastructure

However, comparing to the Course 1 ( GCP fundamentals:Core Infrastructure), it seems this course is still in a development stage because there are still quite a few improvements needed.

loved it Much like the GCP Foundation: Core Infrastructure course, slightly more advanced, this course gave a good overview and opportunity to touch and feel GCP.
