Are you considering the new Professional Cloud Network Engineer certification from Google? If so, this 30-day challenge is for you… Here’s how to join:

  1. Enroll below in the Networking in the Google Cloud quest and use code 1q-30days-363 to get a 30-day free pass to Qwiklabs (ends March 31st.)
  2. Complete the quest by the end of March.
  3. Share your badge on social media. Tag @Qwiklabs and #30DayChallenge, and you get another 30 days of access, absolutely free.

So what are you waiting for?

Some of our favorites in the seven-lab quest include:

VPC Networking Fundamentals — Explore the network that the Virtual Private Cloud uses to provide functionality to all virtual machines (like Kubernetes Engine) on the GCP. Use your own compute engine to create VM instances.

Multiple VPC Networks — Create several custom VPC networks to test connectivity across multiple custom networks (managementnet and privatenet), and build firewall rules to keep them safe. This lab also lets you explore the connectivity potential for VM instances across the network.

Create an Internal Load Balancer — A load balancer lets you create your servers behind a private load balancer IP Address, which only your virtual machine can reach. Practice configuring and testing your own load balancer.

When you complete the challenge and get your second 30-day pass, why not give Network Performance and Optimization a try?
