great course, covers a LOT of material. The Labs sometimes did not work, but it looks like they are fixed now at the time I write this.

Labs are crap, when you ask for help with a lab you are refereed to a third party. In the final graded lab the instructions are total shit. If this continues I will cancel my subscription.

Qwiklabs are still an issue. Some supplementary readings are outdated but still serve the learning purpose.

Ayurveda wisdom meets western encapsulated web cluster... those labs added to Course-4 are a true masterpiece and should be somehow laminated in 3D

Hats off to Google's fun+mental team for "deep diving" into rock solid 6 weeks of System Administration and IT Infrastructure Services
