The course is part of this learning path
Google Cloud Platform has become one of the premier cloud providers on the market. It offers the same rich catalog of services and massive global hardware scale as AWS, as well as a number of Google-specific features and integrations. Mastering the GCP toolset can seem daunting given its complexity. This course is designed to help people familiar with GCP strengthen their understanding of GCP’s compute services, specifically App Engine and Kubernetes Engine.
The Managing Google Kubernetes Engine and App Engine course is designed to help students become confident at configuring, deploying, and maintaining these services. The course will also be helpful to people seeking to obtain Google Cloud certification. The combination of lessons and video demonstrations is optimized for concision and practicality to ensure students come away with an immediately useful skillset.
- Learn how to manage and configure GCP Kubernetes Engine resources
- Learn how to manage and configure GCP App Engine resources
- Individuals looking to build applications using Google Cloud Platform
- People interested in obtaining GCP certification
- Some familiarity with Google Kubernetes Engine, App Engine, and Compute Engine
- Experience working with command-line tools
Welcome to section two. In this second half of the course, we'll be focusing on GCP's App Engine service. Since this course assumes you already have some familiarity with App Engine, we won't spend time explaining what App Engine is, and instead, we'll dive right into spinning up a basic app in the very next lesson. After that, we'll get into some of the critical management components. First with a lesson on configuring application traffic, and then after that with a lesson on autoscaling. As with the previous section, we will end with a video demonstration, walking through the entire setup and deployment process. So if you're ready, let's dive in.
Introduction - Section One Introduction - Kubernetes Concepts - Cluster and Container Configuration - Working with Pods, Services, and Controllers - Kubernetes Demo - Section Two Introduction - Creating a Basic App Engine App - Configuring Application Traffic - Autoscaling App Engine Resources - App Engine Demo - Conclusion
