This skill path covers the objectives needed to implement, deploy, migrate and maintain applications on Google Cloud Platform. It introduces participants to the comprehensive and flexible infrastructure and platform services provided by Google Cloud Platform. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components such as networks, systems and applications services. This path also covers deploying practical solutions including securely interconnecting networks, customer-supplied encryption keys, security and access management, quotas and billing, and resource monitoring. Although this path aligns with the topics for the GCP Professional Cloud Architect and Associate Cloud Engineer exams, it is not a cert exam prep path. This is a path to teach the practical on the job skills for Architecting with GCP.
