Book Description

Build cost-effective and robust cloud solutions with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) using these simple and practical recipes

Key Features

  • Explore the various offerings of the GCP
  • Host a Python application on Google Compute Engine
  • Securely maintain application states with Cloud Storage, Datastore, and Bigtable

Book Description

GCP is a cloud platform with a wide range of products and services that enable you to build and deploy cloud-hosted applications. This Learning Path will guide you in using GCP and designing, deploying, and managing applications on Google Cloud.

You will get started by learning how to use App Engine to access Google's scalable hosting and build software that runs on this framework. With the help of Google Compute Engine, you'll be able to host your workload on virtual machine instances. The later chapters will help you to explore ways to implement authentication and security, Cloud APIs, and command-line and deployment management. As you hone your skills, you'll understand how to integrate your new applications with various data solutions on GCP, including Cloud SQL, Bigtable, and Cloud Storage. Following this, the book will teach you how to streamline your workflow with tools, including Source Repositories, Container Builder, and Stackdriver. You'll also understand how to deploy and debug services with IntelliJ, implement continuous delivery pipelines, and configure robust monitoring and alerts for your production systems. By the end of this Learning Path, you'll be well versed with GCP's development tools and be able to develop, deploy, and manage highly scalable and reliable applications.

This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products:

  • Google Cloud Platform for Developers Ted Hunter and Steven Porter
  • Google Cloud Platform Cookbook by Legorie Rajan PS

What you will learn
