Google Cloud has the tools you need to build apps faster and make smarter business decisions. To help you get started with Google Cloud, and get the most from the platform, we’ve put together a list of no-cost resources below.
Get hands-on experience with Google Cloud fundamentals
Join our half-day event, Cloud OnBoard: Begin with Google Cloud Fundamentals, on Feb. 23 to learn about the basics of Google Cloud from experts.
Experts will start by introducing the core components of Google Cloud and provide an overview of how its tools impact the entire cloud computing landscape. The event will then cover Compute Engine and how to create VM instances from scratch and from existing templates, how to connect them together, and end with projects that can talk to each other safely and securely. You will also learn about the different storage and database options available on Google Cloud.
Afterwards, you’ll have a chance to explore other Google Cloud offerings like Kubernetes Engine and App Engine, and learn more about our managed containerized environments.
The Cloud OnBoard will end with experts guiding you through hands-on labs where you can practice using the Google Console, Google Cloud Shell, and more.
Can’t join the event live on Feb. 23? The training will also be available on-demand after Feb. 23.
