Best Guides for Docker and Google Cloud

Some days I think Google has conquered the world. Other days I use Google products other than search.

One of the most prolific examples of this idiom is Google Cloud, or Compute Engine more specifically. Super power with a promise of being simply within reach, though this has rarely been my experience with it for various projects I’ve used it for since it’s launch.

Testing out an application utilizing Docker’s container greatness recently led to the all to familiar points of frustration. Poorly versioned and maintained documentation. Broken or incomplete tutorials. Best of all, impossible to source solutions for what should be mundane challenges, including using search. Luckily, after much frustration, I found this guide on Docker, Docker Containers, Kubernetes and pushing to production on Google Cloud. Hopefully you find this without having to retrace my loops and hurdles.
