TOP REVIEWS FROM ESSENTIAL GOOGLE CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE: FOUNDATION
Some instructions are not accurate, it might create confussion, take a look at the last exercise, you need to specify sudo to run the commands instead of just copy and paste the commands as it said
A must do for anyone new to GCP. It provides a strong foundation of the Networking concepts used in GCP which is fundamental to doing anything here. Also covered are the VMs in fair bit of detail.
This is an Awesome Course where I got to learn a lot about the VM Instance and its usage and the Storage Bucket concepts. And in specific, the Lab for deploying a Minecraft server was super cool.
It would be helpful to have slides downloads as it was done in the GCP Cloud Fundamentals course. Labs are well organized and helpful in getting hands on experience with explained concepts.
