This course is designed to help you prepare for the Google Certified Professional Cloud Architect Exam. Even if you don't plan to take the Exam, this training content will help you gain a solid understanding of the various components of the Google Cloud Platform.

We start by looking at the fundamentals of Google Cloud Platform, including App Engine, Kubernetes Engine, Compute Engine, storage, BigQuery, Cloud Firestore, and app deployment, and give you the chance to build solutions in live GCP environments via our hands-on labs. We also cover how to build infrastructure and manage operations in GCP, as well taking an in-depth look at Google Kubernetes Engine.

Finally, you'll put your newly acquired knowledge to the test by taking a lab challenge in which you have to build a GCP solution on your own, before taking a final exam which has been built to simulate the real Google Certified Professional Cloud Architect Exam.

Thanks to a variety of content types, including courses, hands-on labs, lab challenges, and final exam, this course validates your skills of developing, designing, administrating, and managing solutions using Google Cloud technologies.
