Course outline

Design, develop, and deploy applications on GCP

Duration : 3 days

This course was formerly titled “Developing Solutions with Google Cloud Platform” (CPD200).
In this course, application developers learn how to design, develop, and deploy applications
that seamlessly integrate components from the Google Cloud ecosystem. Through a
combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants learn how to use GCP
services and pre-trained machine learning APIs to build secure, scalable, and intelligent
cloud-native applications.


To get the most benefit from this course, participants should have the following
• Completed Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals or have equivalent
• Working knowledge of Node.js
• Basic proficiency with command line tools and Linux operating system


This course teaches participants the following skills:
• 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
• Engine as a runtime environment and later switch to a no-ops solution with Google
App Engine Flex.
