Course Overview

In this specialization, application developers learn how to design, develop, and deploy applications that seamlessly integrate components from the Google Cloud ecosystem. Through 4 courses and a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants learn how to use GCP services and pre-trained machine learning APIs to build secure, scalable, and intelligent cloud-native applications.

This class is intended for application developers who want to build cloud-native applications or redesign existing applications that will run on Google Cloud Platform.

Specialization objectives

This course teaches participants the following skills:

• Use best practices for application development.

• Choose the appropriate data storage option for application data.

• Implement federated identity management.

• Develop loosely coupled application components or microservices.

• Integrate application components and data sources.

• Debug, trace, and monitor applications.

• Perform repeatable deployments with containers and deployment services.

• Choose the appropriate application runtime environment; use Google Container Engine as a runtime environment and later switch to a no-ops solution with Google App Engine flexible environment.

 

Course 1:

Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure

Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure covers the fundamentals of Google Cloud Platform and is the first course in both specializations. This course introduces you to important concepts and terminology for working with Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

You learn about, and compare, many of the computing and storage services available in Google Cloud Platform, including Google App Engine, Google Compute Engine, and Google Container Engine.

Notes:

• You'll need a Google/Gmail account and a credit card or bank account to sign up for the Google Cloud Platform free trial (Google services are currently unavailable in China).

• If you are a Google Cloud Platform customer with European Union (EU) and Russian billing addresses, read the VAT Overview documentation at: https://cloud.google.com/billing/docs/resources/vat-overview

• More Google Cloud Platform free trial FAQs are available at: https://cloud.google.com/free-trial/

 

Course 2: 

Getting Started With Application Development

In this course, application developers learn how to design and develop cloud-native applications that seamlessly integrate components from the Google Cloud ecosystem. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants learn how to apply best practices for application development and use the appropriate GCP storage services for object storage, relational data, caching, and analytics.

 

Course 3:

Securing and Integrating Components of your Application

In this course, application developers learn how to design and develop cloud-native applications that seamlessly integrate components from the Google Cloud ecosystem. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants learn how to develop more secure applications, implement federated identity management, and integrate application components by using messaging, event-driven processing, and API gateways.
