Requisite(s): 41001 Cloud Computing and Software as a Service
This subject builds on the fundamentals of Cloud Computing and systematically exposes students to the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Following a brief introduction to the GCP infrastructure, various GCP-related core services are covered. This is followed by in-depth discussion and exploration of principles and practices on Architecting with the GCP, scaling using the GCP infrastructure and working with Kubernetes. During the subject, students are exposed to cloud-based software engineering skills using the GCP. The students are expected to get prepared for the Google certification by completing two assessments using the GCP. The focus of the assessment is on testing the students' skills in GCP, architecting correctly and using Kubernetes.
