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.

Useful, but with a strange mix of very high level and low level concerns.

Will be great if I can choose the language as Java for the examples.

the content is good but the instruction guiding students is sometimes not clear and direct which is making it difficult to for me to complete some labs.

and the second thing is i have no one to consult if i have issues during my labs because as at now i have three labs pending which i have been trying to complete for over 2 weeks now but still to no avail...

i need assistance to complete the labs on GETTING STARTED WITH APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT.

A large barf of information. Not that something that I would pay for. This course seems more useful as a set of documentation (which all of the information is contained in), organized in something along the lines of a Best Practices series. The labs were helpful, but they seemed scattered and lacked the context of the first course in this series. I will be looking at the labs separately as they do seem useful.

This course doesn't have much labs as the prior course in the specialization. Many Demos could have the equivalent labs. The labs that use Datastore are not working properly. I got Nginx 504 Gateway Timeout error when trying to save a new entity through the NodeJS application.

you must have to tell that some labs are optional and java in quiklabs is completely broken althought teaching is good and quizzes are good too

not as good as the core fundamental course, I would rather read documentations than paying 50$ to watch some one reading couple of slides.

Felt it was too high level. Need more hands-on labs with stepwise walkthrough covering the theory that was covered.

It has a lot of redundancy with the first course 'Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure'...

The Quiklabs don't work (404 errors), which means none of the labs can be completed.

The courses are nothing more than copy/pasting from the online documentation...

Did not like the delivery of the course. The material was not well structured.

The material did not have consistency of depth that it wanted to cover.

For Ex: Best practices were at a programming and deployment level, while most of the content was at a much higher level.

Need a review of the material

Though the structure, presentation and format of the course is excellent, I haven't learned any development in this course. The lab tests were handheld and step by step procedure. After Finishing this course I can not confidently initiate any development on Google Cloud.

It is nothing to learn. It is just marketing material of google. I expected to see how you develop an application step by step.
