About the Course

"Microservices" describes a software design pattern in which an application is a collection of loosely coupled services. These services are fine-grained, and can be individually maintained and scaled. The microservices architecture is ideal for the public cloud, with its focus on elastic scaling with on-demand resources. In this course, you will learn how to build Java applications using Spring Boot and Spring Cloud on Google Cloud Platform. You'll use Cloud Runtime Configuration and Spring Cloud Config to manage your application's configuration. You'll send and receive messages with Cloud Pub/Sub and Spring Integration. You'll also use Cloud SQL as a managed relational database for your Java applications, and learn how to migrate to Cloud Spanner, which is Google Cloud's globally-distributed strongly consistent database service. You'll also learn about tracing and debugging your Spring applications with Stackdriver. To succeed in this course, you should be familiar with the Java programming language and building Java applications with tools such as Maven or Gradle. You should also have general knowledge of Google Cloud Platform >>> By enrolling in this course you agree to the Qwiklabs Terms of Service as set out in the FAQ and located at: https://qwiklabs.com/terms_of_service <<<...

You should warn users of this course that they will not be able to do the labs if they are auditing the course. Because nobody likes wasting time you know..

Althoug course is great for learning about GCP, very few info is provided about Spring boot itself. I was expecting to learn also about Spring boot, which I had to do myself becasue the course does not cover it, even the mos simplest info.

Also there are some labs not working due to kubernetes unssoported versions.

Labs consist only of copy pasting code into google cloud labs. No explanation, no challenge. Labs often not working as intended. I expected more coming from the google brand.

Unfortunately in this course you won't learn much about neither Spring Boot nor Spring Cloud. You'll just learn the concepts by using the GCP platform but that's it.

A part from that, labs are interesting and well done.

Beginning on the first order: export PROJECT_ID=$(gcloud config list --format 'value(core.project)') that asigns an empty value to the environment variables, many things are wrong on the course. The first 4 practices can be done with a some knowledge of shell and experience managing and installing (Im a 15 years experience engineer but after that chapter, any can be done. I contact Quicklabs support (Google) and they say that they downloaded and tested the complete course and everything works properly. Impossible!!

As someone else said before on the evaluation, you expect more quality form a paid course even further if it comes from Google.

Bad experience

Awesome course with very good practical sessions. Also I want to see more quiz after each practical exam.

Google Cloud, Kubernetes, Spring Boot, etc are cool exciting technologies themselves, but I don´t feel this course is worth the time and money.

In the first place, the lectures are bare boned and completely content devoid. They get to explain little more than what can be accomplished through a couple of web searches. Then there is the labs, which consist pretty much of dumb lists of steps to take, with no further explanation provided, and which pose no challenge at all. At least you get to fiddle around with the Qwiklabs thing, the Google Cloud Shell and the Google Cloud API manager, which are really cool... and that would be the only redeeming feature to be found here.

Moreover, the course is scheduled to be done in two weeks, but it can be easily completed in a couple of evenings (fiddling with the provided Spring App, the API manager, and all). Such is the lack of actual content this course provides. The icing of the cake comes when you get to the Qwiklabs introduction video, which has been borrowed from another course. Like, they haven´t even bothered to purposely make one for this course.

There is nothing to do here in the Audit mode. If you are not willing to pay, you won't get anything. Other courses, at leas you can grab some knowledge for free.

This course provides an overview about the GCP components and services nothing related to spring microservices.

Lab 12 has issues

By Dineth S

You can have an overall idea as well as hands on experience on basic components of GCP. Lab setups are well maintained and provide step by step instructions.

But It is better if it contain small description or theory part behind every lab step telling that why we are doing this step & what is the technical and theoretical background behind this action etc.

The course give insight on how to leverage Spring Cloud GCP and google cloud services to deploy a microservice architecture based application, manage, scale ,repackage it to use cloud native persistence and give various strategies to efficiently leverage GCP capabilities. Thanks to the instructors, Coursera and Google

Course covers fundamental concepts, Overall lab activities and instructions are good. Consider having questions at the end of each chapter. Lab instruction for last chapter (Monitoring Google Kubernetes Engine with Prometheus) seems incorrect, was not working, rest all fine.

Amazing course and a must course if anyone uses GCP and Spring Microservices. Definitely recommend this to all microservices developers. Gave a very good insight on amazing features that GCP offers and so many methods to choose from.

The hands on nature was incredible! The course was a fantastic overview of a broad range of GCP capabilities. I'm much more confident now in knowing what's out there, and what it would take to consume.
