In this advanced-level quest, you will learn the ins and outs of developing GCP applications in Python. The first labs will walk you through the basics of environment setup and application data storage with Cloud Datastore. Once you have a handle on the fundamentals, you will get hands-on practice deploying Python applications on Kubernetes and App Engine (the latter is the same framework that powers Snapchat!) With specialized bonus labs that teach user authentication and backend service development, this quest will give you practical experience so you can start developing robust Python applications straight away.
In this introductory-level quest, you will learn the fundamentals of developing and deploying applications on the Google Cloud Platform. You will get hands-on experience with the Google App Engine framework by launching applications written in languages like Python, Ruby, and Java (just to name a few). You will see first-hand how straightforward and powerful GCP application frameworks are, and how easily they integrate with GCP database, data-loss prevention, and security services.
When it comes to hosting websites and web applications, you want a framework that’s robust, fast, and secure. By choosing the Google Cloud Platform, you will have all of those needs covered. In this fundamental-level quest, you will get hands-on practice with GCPs key infrastructure and computing services for the web. From deploying your first web app, to integrating Cloud SQL with Ruby on Rails, to mapping the NYC subway system on App Engine, you will learn all the skills needed to harness GCPs web hosting power.
Apigee enables you to create APIs and manage them for the benefit of other developers who might need to use your software. Apigee Edge enables you to quickly expose backend services as APIs. These "API Products" offer different capabilities and levels of service, with consumption managed by Apigee. Istio is an open source framework for connecting, securing, and managing microservices, especially services that are hosted in a Kubernetes cluster. This Quest of hands-on labs gives you practice in using Apigee for API creation and management functionality when you decide to modernize an application backend on Google Kubernetes Engine and an Istio based service mesh.
The Cloud Security Scanner identifies security vulnerabilities in your Google App Engine web applications.
This lab deploys a Kubernetes Engine Cluster with the Binary Authorization feature enabled; you'll learn how to whitelist approved container registries and the process of creating and running a signed container.
In this lab you will learn how Kubernetes Engine security features can be used to grant varying levels of privilege to applications based on their particular requirements
This is a Challenge Lab where you must complete a series of tasks within a limited time period. Instead of following step-by-step instructions, you will be presented with a general objective, and will be scored automatically based on your activity.
This Lab uses the Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Firewall to provide security to a simple, two-tiered Guestbook application in a Kubernetes cluster.
This hands-on lab Demonstrates how to use Binary Authorization secure your GKE cluster by requiring all containers to be verified and signed by trusted attestors as a part of the build/deploy process.
