As a trusted Google Cloud Partner, Jellyfish has been selected by Google to facilitate the delivery of this three day course.

Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, you’ll learn how to use Google Cloud Platform services and pre-trained machine learning APIs to build secure, scalable, and intelligent cloud-native applications.

Designed for application developers, on this course we’ll share best practices for application development and using Cloud Datastore and Google Cloud Storage.

This Developing Applications with Google Cloud Platform course is offered as a private training session and will be run over three consecutive days. It can be delivered at our own training venues in the Rosebank Link, Johannesburg or Umhlanga, any location of your choice or via Virtual Classroom.

Course overview
Who should attend:
This course is intended for Application developers who want to build cloud-native applications or redesign existing applications that will run on Google Cloud Platform.
Walk away with the ability to:
  • 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 Kubernetes Engine as a runtime environment and later switch to a no-ops solution with Google App Engine Flex
Prerequisites

To get the most benefit from this course you should have completed Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals or have equivalent experience.

It’s recommended that you have a working knowledge of Node.js. You will need a basic proficiency with command-line tools and Linux operating system environments.
