GCPDEVA - Developing Applications with Google Cloud Platform
Learn how to design, develop, and deploy applications that seamlessly integrate components from the Google Cloud ecosystem. This course uses lectures, demos, and hands-on labs to show you how to use Google Cloud services and pre-trained machine learning APIs to build secure, scalable, and intelligent cloud-native applications.
This course teaches participants the following skills:
- Use best practices for application development.
- Choose the appropriate data storage option for application data.
- Implement federated identity management.
- Develop loosely coupled application components or microservices.
- Integrate application components and data sources.
- Debug, trace, and monitor applications.
- Perform repeatable deployments with containers and deployment services.
- Choose the appropriate application runtime environment; use Google Container Engine as a runtime environment and later switch to a no-ops solution with Google App Engine flexible environment.
Application developers who want to build cloud-native applications or redesign existing applications that will run on Google Cloud Platform
The course includes presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs.
