A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

For developers, generative AI is a powerful tool for making coding more efficient and using APIs - such as the PaLM API - within their applications.

During this one-day session, you’ll be introduced to how generative AI can be used to make developers more efficient at writing code and implementing new features into applications.

Throughout the course, you’ll learn principles of prompt design and how to explore the different models available on Google Cloud by using Vertex AI Model Garden.

This Introduction to Developer Efficiency on Google Cloud course is available as a private session and can be delivered via Virtual Classroom, at our training centre in The Shard, London, or at a location of your choice in the UK.
