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.

About the Developing Applications with Google Cloud Platform Specialization

In this specialization, 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. This class is intended for application developers who want to build cloud-native applications or redesign existing applications that will run on Google Cloud Platform. 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 Container Engine as a runtime environment and later switch to a no-ops solution with Google App Engine flexible environment....
