Course Description

The Architecting with Google Compute Engine (AGCE) course is designed to provide individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to design scalable and highly available solutions using Google Compute Engine (GCE), a core infrastructure service on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This course focuses on architectural principles, best practices, and hands-on experience to enable participants to build robust and efficient solutions on GCE.

Prerequisites

To enroll in the AGCE course, participants should have a strong understanding of cloud computing concepts and familiarity with GCP fundamentals. Prior experience with designing and deploying applications on GCP or other cloud platforms is recommended. Participants should also have a basic understanding of networking, storage, and compute concepts.

Methodology

The AGCE course follows a blended learning approach, combining theoretical instruction, demonstrations, discussions, and hands-on labs. Participants will engage in instructor-led sessions where architectural principles and best practices for GCE are explained. They will also have access to GCE resources and tools to gain practical experience in designing and implementing solutions. The course encourages active participation, discussions, and collaborative problem-solving to reinforce learning.
