About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.


Challenge Description

In this lab challenge, you will need to prove your general knowledge of content related to storage, load balancing, CDN, networking and monitoring services offered by Google Cloud. The goals you will need to achieve represent essential skills that a Professional Cloud Developer needs to have. You'll be given a desired end state and be required to reach it using your knowledge of Google Cloud services. While this lab challenge won't cover every topic of the Professional Cloud Developer certification, it will be a good first step toward determining whether you're on the right path. The lab challenge simulates building a basic solution in a real-world scenario. As with any real-world scenario, this lab will not guide you through the steps needed to complete it.

  • Google Cloud Networking
  • Google Cloud Load Balancers and CDNs
  • Google Cloud Storage
  • Google Cloud Monitoring

Intended audience

  • Google Cloud practioners
  • Candidates for the Google Professional Cloud Developer certification


  • Familiarity with Google Cloud storage, load balancers and monitoring services
