This is an excellent training course with great labs, allowing in depth hands-on to the real Google Cloud platform. This alone allows for a better understanding of what's Google Cloud Infrastructure.

Thanks to Google and its team for producing such a wonderful training content. It was a breeze to know about GCP and core services even for a guy like me how has not been hands-on for over 20 years.

Didn't like reiteration of the same foundation basic things over and over again, I'd recommend focus on things that one need to understand, not things that you can just read from the screen in 5 seconds.

Also the way lectures are given is a bit robotic, like someone is just reading the text equally emphasizing obvious and tricky things.

I found the extremely short videos quite distracting, they were clearly taken from a longer presentation and cut into ~1minute chunks which didn't really work.

Also some Quiklabs showed 'resume' in the review list, whilst others didn't, despite me finishing all of them.

Video content is good. Quiklabs sessions are carelessly done with unclear (and, often incorrect) instructions. The use of Incognito window is clunky. Quiklabs / Google need to pony up and make one project available for the term of the course.

I generally found the course to be very helpful and cannot complain about any of the contents. However, there is a lab that I could not complete since about 4 days and it's due to the inability to create a VM in Europe-West (London).

It a good starting points to taste what's GCP. It try to cover quite a number of concepts & ideas, and the pace is a bit first. For those without any cloud experience it may be too difficult for them.

It is a great course, unfortunately, in some videos the subtitles are not synced or are wrong and it is very distracting. Subtitles are really necessary for people whose first language is not English.

I obviously wasn't part of the target audience for this course as lots of what was covered was way over my head. I did find it useful though to go through many of the offerings on the GCP.

There's a lot of lab session and some information that will be good to be put before the lab session for a general overview than heading to do the lab first then review on what is done,

Good videos and labs though some of the content examples didn't work. Constructive criticism, for answers you get wrong, you should be able to see what the correct answer was.

The lab review should come before the actual lab. In this case it wouldn't be a review. There's no incentive in watch the review after performing the labs.

Good intro, but it's just a basic overview and gives only a shallow understanding. Hands-on but doesn't require much thought.

The quizes are too small and not very challenging. It needs to be lengthy and have more challenging architecture questions

It is buggy in evaluating the labs. I had to repeat the easy V lab more than 4 times doing exactly the same each ttime...

These courses need course manuals. Use case explanations. Google really needs to look at how AWS does their training.

More quiz would be better. The content is quite dense and reviewing the understanding after each video would be great.

Lessons was good but the course had few quiz and video quality is only 720p, even lower for the downloaded video

Minimal knowledge learnt. Needs to be updated to take into account knowledge learnt from the first course.

Course was not perfect, but it was good. A little boring for strong linux background users, but OK.

Coursera's interface is not that great, specially the navigation menus for the courses.

Covered a few of the topics already covered in course 1, but very helpful in the end

Lab's are a bit too long for my taste. Could be broken down into smaller modules.
