Professional Collaboration Engineer Exam Guide

Posted by Ryan Allred on Oct 14, 2019 9:18:38 AM

I took (and failed) the GCP Professional Collaboration Engineer certification earlier this week. I want to share my experience so that others can avoid the same mistakes. I have been administering over G Suite domains for two years and have obtained several Google certifications, most recently the GCP Professional Cloud Architect. I am sharing my past experiences to give context to the mistakes when preparing for the exam.

How to make dotnetcore work with GCP CloudRun

Posted by Dan Taylor on Apr 11, 2019 9:10:56 AM

This is what the .NET community needed to fully embrace GCP

Yesterday at Google Next, they announced something I've been wanting for a long time. As a google partner, sometimes I get to hear about things when they're in alpha and this was one of them. Serverless containers is the ultimate awesome in my mind, especially for webapps and APIs, because everyone knows the biggest headache for containers is orchestration. Well this announcement kinda abrogates the need for orchestration at all. If these things auto-scale then I don't have to manage a K8s cluster at all. I mean, yeah for internal services there is some significant networking work to do, but DUDE. Auto-scaling CONTAINERS that are SERVERLESS. Can life better? I submit that it CANNOT!

When creating an AWS EC2 instance, there is a User Data section where you can include scripts that will be run immediately upon instance creation. I was attempting to use AWS CloudFormation to define the infrastructure of my current project and ran into the issue of how to include the User Data section in the CloudFormation JSON definition.

How do I deploy my Docker stuff??

Docker Deployment

DevOps is harder than it sounds

If you're like me, when you learned about containers, you got SUPER excited. There is something about wrapping up your code in a nice little package where it has everything it needs to run in a happy little space where it's nice and warm. BUT; how'm I supposed to get my happy warm little container out into the real world where it can actually do some good? This is harder question to answer.

There is no need to continuously upload your template via the console, you guys
