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.

Skills Gained

This course teaches participants the following skills:

  • 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.

Who Can Benefit

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

Attended a Power BI class in McLean with this company. The instructor (Mike Staves) was very good and attentive to the groups' learning needs. The facility was very good and the staff was more than accommodating.

Team is very good to organize things, reply immediately to coordinate and advise.

The course was well organized, excellent training materials and lab excercises.

Thank you for training on AWS development. Course was good and encouraging but labs need to be improved and provide more information and ask students to more work than provide solutions.

Everything went well. Enrollment process was easy and I always felt welcomed throughout the whole experience.
