In this course, application developers learn how to design and develop cloud-native applications that seamlessly integrate managed services from the Google Cloud Platform. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants learn how to apply best practices for application development and use the appropriate GCP storage services for object storage, relational data, caching, and analytics. Learners can choose to complete labs in their favorite language: Node.js, Java, or Python.

TOP REVIEWS FROM GETTING STARTED WITH APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
I thought the course was generally good, but too many of the videos felt like they were just dumping information onto me without giving examples that would help make the content more understandable.
t was a good free course. I only realised the second time round the labs are ungraded. So I plan on doing them outside Coursera on Qwiklabs itself so I can earn credits for my lab work.
I quick introduction to the developing applications using google cloud. Covers important topics. But you surely need to go through more labs to really get started
You can gain a certificate just by clicking through the tests that are aimed on imbecils. Now I understand where all those "Certified cloud specialists" are from.
Re-hashed a decent amount of previous material -- for good reason. I liked that it provided practical experience working on a project within the GCP ecosystem.
The Lab session must have had a video in order to track the flow in a better manner. Theory was really helpful. The lab sessions could have been better.
Great contents! I'd love to have more in depth labs like the one we had for Cloud Datastore and that there's a lab to do the same as in the demo videos
A course with pretty much clarity of storage options with an overview of examples that brings closer to implementation. Impressive indeed. Thank you.
Some overlap with the core GCP intro class, but overall nice. I like that it gives you the option of 3 different languages to take the labs in.
An excellent introduction to core knowledge required to build modern and scalable apps. Looking forward to applying this.
Good course and good insight about building Secured, Scalable application using different database, cloud storage option.
Concise and good. would appreciate also a java based web app along with node.js for a sample web-app setup example.
I think that in one quiz there was a question that was later discussed in the videos. Other than that it was great!
Create coverage of all the storage services, with good introductions to the basics of GCS and Cloud Datastore
Pretty good course, but I wish there were possibility to practice in labs using other programming languages.
Some topics in the course are too concise; it is essential to read the linked documentation and articles.
it was very informative course in relation with google storage. Learnt many small technicalities of them
for a newbie this was a good course....maybe a little more in depth review of each type of cloud storage
Was a solid resource for defining Google Cloud resources for an application development environment.
The course should review App Engine in more detail. Also use examples of python for lab course.
