Overview

In this course, application developers learn how to design, develop, and deploy applications that seamlessly integrate components from the Google Cloud ecosystem. Through 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.

Prerequisites

To get the most benefit from this course, participants should have the following prerequisites:

  • Completed Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals or have equivalent experience
  • Working knowledge of Node.js
  • Basic proficiency with command-line tools and Linux operating system environments

Target Audience

Application developers who want to build cloud-native applications or redesign existing applications that will run on Google Cloud Platform.

Learning Outcomes

  • 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 Kubernetes Engine as a runtime environment and later switch to a no-ops solution with Google App Engine Flex.
