After San Francisco, Melbourne, Singapore and Eindhoven, Cloud OnBoard touched down in Brussels for the first time, on Tuesday the 24th of April. Of course, as a certified Google Cloud training partner, g-company attended this event too. The day had a Googley start, with a short introduction and even a mexican wave. And after this energetic kick-off, the roughly 350 participants were guided through the functions and possibilities of Google Cloud Platform by Grant Moyle, senior trainer at ROI.
A general introduction started of the first bit of theory, answering how Google Cloud Platform works, what it has to offer, and most importantly: reasons why you could choose to use it. Afterwards, topics ranging from IaaS and PaaS to Google App Engine and GCP Big Data were tackled a little more in-depth. Jokes were cracked between the theoretical explanations.
During the breaks, participants could enjoy food and drinks, while taking a closer look at the Google partner booths. This way, they were able to spar ideas on how to put the theory into a more concrete application. And even after the last participant went home, the event was not truly over. Namely: everyone who took part in Cloud OnBoard, was offered the opportunity to put the theory to practice and experiment via hands-on Qwiklabs sessions.
Are you regretting missing Cloud OnBoard? No worries! g-company regularly organizes Cloud Platform introduction sessions as well. During this free day-long training you are shown the ins and outs of the platform with hands-on Qwiklabs sessions in between, under the expert guidance of our instructor.
