Course ID: HCC-GCP-PS-102
This course is completely hands-on and based on a practical scenario mimicking the real work enterprise environment. You will be starting from a requirements matrix and finish with a solution that work together. I have provided video walkthrough for each task of the assignment matrix so that you can follow along and we can build this solution together.
Who is this type of format for?
This format is ideal for all of the following:
•Folks who are working in the field and want to learn more,
•Folks who are new to Cloud Computing field
•Candidates preparing for Cloud Certifications.
This particular practical scenario is focused on getting started with Google Cloud Platform. Here is a list of high level objectives that we will accomplish together.
•Getting started with Google Cloud Platform.
•Setup free tier account with Google Cloud Platform.
•Learn Google Cloud architecture at a high level.
•Deploy and access Linux VMs.
•Deploy and access Windows VM.
•Configure and use compute instance template.
•Configure and use compute instance groups.
•Deploy web service on Linux VM instance.
•Configure VPC firewall.
•Create budget alerts.
•Use Google Cloud Shell.
•Create storage buckets.
•Upload, download, delete files in buckets.
What is the Practical Scenario based Training Program Developed by Kasey Shah?
Practical Scenario based course allows learners to learn Cloud Computing by building a practical solution based on business requirements. This is primarily a hands-on course with some relevant substantive commentary along the way. You will be given a set of requirements in a matrix. Your job is to build the environment based on these requirements.
I will be walking you through each task and provide you videos for my approach. I will also provide you PDF handout of the Requirement matrix, my notes, and relevant information.
How is it different than other formats?
I have courses on the same topics in other format such as “Prepare & Pass” Series, “Practice Exam Q&A based Training” Series, and “Hands-on Labs” Series. This is different in the following ways:
•This format focuses on building a scenario as opposed to learning individual topic in theoretical aspect.
•It allows learners to apply their theoretical learning in a practical manner.
•It prepares candidates to answer more certification exam questions correctly because of the depth of their knowledge.
•It encourages learners to build a real world scenario and learn from their experience.
How Should you consume this course?
•I recommend that you go sequentially in this course.
•Carefully understand the requirements.
•For every task, watch me performing it in the video.
•Follow along the second time. Pause, rewind, fast forward as necessary.
•Go to the next task.
•Once you complete the scenario, try to do the whole scenario yourself.
•Refer to the videos for help.
•Bookmark videos as you see fit.
•Make notes if you are studying for certification exam.
•Ask questions in Q& A forum.
•Keep me posted.
Quotes from my previous Learners:
This morning, I passed my CCP exam! Thank you for your course! If you look at my progress in your course, you’ll note that it LOOKS like I haven’t viewed all the videos; I have actually viewed them all but had reset my progress.
When I arrived at the exam site -with 15 minutes to spare- there were already people taking the exam. Start time apparently was apparently flexible but, as you know, the test limit of 90 minutes was enforced.
I’m writing to tell you that, despite being the LAST person to start, I was the FIRST person to finish! Practice exams prepared me for the format of the test, but the preparation for the CONTENT of the test was from you (and the resources you indicated we should study). I didn’t attempt to rush the test; I finished quickly because I had a thorough understanding of all the material! I don’t feel “lucky” I passed; I feel I could take the test with whatever they “throw at me” and pass; whatever scenario they propose in a question, I will have the answer! I didn’t study for the test; I studied for the material and content. It felt so good to know and understand the material and be confident in my abilities and knowledge.
Next up! Solutions Architect Professional!
I had experience with some videos from this course from a friend. I was impressed enough that, despite having been able to study with my friend together using his one account, I decided I wanted to support the guy that made the course (Kasey!). I’m doing this because I want MORE from him! I want to go up to professional.”
“Hey Kasey! I’m supplementing with your course. I must say, I am thankful that I had a solid understanding of the topic prior to your course. I’m halfway done at the moment, and each question makes me realize
“WOW.. I thought I knew this.. but not in this insane level of detail!” I’m hopeful to pass the exam and would love your guidance to help me along the way. Thank you! The course rocks and I hope to finish this weekend. :D”
”The approach with the highlighting, explanation, and detailed including additional information are very helpful to learning.”
”It is a wonderfully organized course. I have been studying for the exam for a few weeks now and this course has helped me a lot. The course is formatted in a way that it provides you preparing material very precisely, this has saved me a lot of time”
“Mr. Shah immediately reminded me of my graduate professor for Finite Element Methods in that he is a proponent of the students success and fluid understanding of the material.”
“The course was very helpful as the instructor provided in-depth explanation for some important topics”
”I just finished your class and wow.. amazing!! “
”I am absolutely motivated and I am going to pass the exam.”
