We designed this learning path to give students a solid foundation in I.T. and Google Cloud fundamentals that will serve as a springboard into intermediate certification and deep dive courses. When you complete this learning path, you will have the required knowledge and skills to enroll in any Google Cloud Certification (associate level) course.
This course is for the absolute beginner to Google Cloud Platform. Have you ever wanted to know, in very simple terms, the answer to the following questions?: What is the cloud? What is Google Cloud? What are Google Cloud's core services? Why do we use Google Cloud? If you answered yes to any of these, then this course is for you. Our goal with this course is to provide a simple, conceptual introduction to the concepts of Cloud Computing, Google Cloud Platform, and it's core services. There are no technical explanations or definitions to memorize — this course is visual, and strictly conceptual. When you are done with this course, you will have the conceptual foundation to move forward onto more advanced GCP courses. By having the frame-of-reference understanding from this course, you will be more prepared to tackle the more complex technical concepts and terminology.
This course is designed for those who want to learn about Google Cloud: what cloud computing is, the overall advantages Google Cloud offers, and detailed explanation of all major services - what they are, their use cases, and how to use them.
