Dhawal Shah completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
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://codelab Read More

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.
