Service Area (Intermediate) Gcp essentials

In this introductory-level quest, you will get hands-on practice with the Google Cloud Platform’s fundamental tools and services. GCP Essentials is Qwiklabs’ most popular quest and for good reason—you will come in with little, or no prior cloud knowledge and come out with practical experience that you can apply to any GCP project. From writing Cloud Shell commands and deploying your first virtual machine, to running applications on Kubernetes Engine with load balancing, GCP Essentials is a prime introduction to the platform’s features.
