Welcome to this certification preparation course for the Google Certified Professional Cloud Developer qualification. This course is going to teach you the hands-on skills and knowledge you need to build scalable and reliable cloud-native apps, and to pass the Professional Cloud Developer exam.
We'll cover all of the domains of the published exam guide, as well as provide hands-on experience of deploying, managing and troubleshooting applications across the primary platforms of GCP - Compute Engine, Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Functions and Cloud Run. We'll also lookk at application performance monitoring with GCP’s operations suite, as well as the essentials of application security.
At the end of this course you will be a competent Cloud Developer, ready to make the most of GCP for your next application, and of course, ready to pass the Professional Cloud Developer exam.
To study this course, you should have around a year of experience using Google Cloud Platform. If you have the Associate Cloud Engineer certification or equivalent experience that’s great. You should also be proficient with at least one major programming language, so that you’re able to create your own apps to run in the cloud.
This is an exam-prep course, so we’ll cover everything you need to know for the exam, but not dive too deep on each of the exam domains. If you’re looking for some more in-depth learning, check out the deep dive courses available in our Google Cloud Developer learning path instead. But if you’re itching to book that exam and prove your developer prowess, this is the course for you!
