This course gives an overview of the different services/products that are part of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The videos are basically webcasts - slides + some person talking. The course also contains labs which give you hands-on experience. The labs are not part of Coursera and can be found here: https://codelabs.developers.google.com/

I was looking to move my website from my current cloud provider as it is getting expensive. I have dabbled in GCP before, but it always felt a bit overwhelming. The course provided me with a good overview of the entire ecosystem and now I feel I should choose GCP as my provider.

The course is very basic and I wouldn't say I know how to use GCP. It probably took me five hours to finish it.

It seems that Coursera was used as a channel to get people to codelabs.developers.google.com where the labs are. The course only shows 1 week and it's easy to lose your spot because of the dozens of tabs for each module (varying between 2 minutes and 10 minutes). The presentation is stale... although this isn't uncommon for this kind of material. But I enjoyed the hands-on labs. Excellent explanations and details. I didn't have any trouble.

All-in-all, this course helped introduce me to Google Cloud Platform but more effort could've been put into it.

The videos are a bit long, but the labs are very clear and give the whole view of the essential functionalities. I would rather say that the tests are easy. This is a brave training that tries to show many aspects of the google cloud platform.

Having been on gcp adoption journey for a while now, took this course as part of architecture with Google cloud specialization.

Found the content to be good and explanations were just enough to get a high-level introduction.

Found the labs to be quite interesting however the labs experience could have been improved by not having to login for each section.

Would recommend for any one wanting to get a good overview of gcp ecosystem.
