This advanced-level quest is unique amongst the other Qwiklabs offerings. The labs have been curated to give IT professionals hands-on practice with topics and services that appear in the Google Cloud Certified Professional Data Engineer Certification. From Big Query, to Dataproc, to Tensorflow, this quest is composed of specific labs that will put your GCP data engineering knowledge to the test. Be aware that while practice with these labs will increase your skills and abilities, you will need other preparation too. The exam is quite challenging and external studying, experience, and/or background in cloud data engineering is recommended.
If you are a novice cloud developer looking for hands-on practice with GCP’s core infrastructure services, do yourself a favor and enroll in this quest. As a student, you will get practical experience by taking labs that dive into Cloud Storage, computing engines like Kubernetes, and key application services like Stackdriver and Deployment Manager. By taking this quest, you will develop invaluable skills that apply to any GCP project.
Big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are today’s hot computing topics, but these fields are quite specialized and introductory material is hard to come by. Fortunately, GCP provides user-friendly services in these areas and Qwiklabs has you covered with this introductory-level quest, so you can take your first steps with tools like Big Query, Cloud Speech API, and Cloud ML Engine. Want extra help? 1-minute videos walk you through key concepts for each lab.
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.
In this lab, you create one VM in the premium network service tier (default) and one VM in the standard network service tier. Then you compare the latency and routes for each VM instance.
This lab will show you how to deploy a set of Cloud Functions in order to process images and videos with the Cloud Vision API and Cloud Video Intelligence API.
In this lab, you'll work on practical elements of performance testing, with an eye to improving network bandwidth in your environment by using different core sizes and internal vs. external networks.
In this lab you'll learn how to use Stackdriver Profiler on GCP by downloading a sample Go program then exploring the captured data in the Profiler console.
