What is Google Cloud?

Google Cloud Platform (GCP), offered by Google, is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products, such as Google Search, Gmail and YouTube. Alongside a set of management tools, it provides a series of modular cloud services including computing, data storage, data analytics and machine learning. (Wikipedia)


The course was provided to the students as a part of the joint venture between Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP) Kerala and Google Cloud. Top performing students were each gifted a Google Home Mini as a token of appreciation for their dedication and hard work! The five-part course was completed by the students via Coursera and included various labs, quizzes and training videos offered completely free of cost!
