Back by popular demand: Google Cloud products in 4 words or less (2022 edition)

4 Words or Less Full Screen HEader

We know that it is not easy to keep track of 200+ Google Cloud products and their use cases. Where do you even start?! Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We have created a version 2 of the Google Cloud Cheat Sheet for developers. You asked and we listened…you wanted an interactive version of the Google Cloud 4-words-or-less cheat sheet, and well…now you have it!   

It’s now easier than ever to quickly get up to speed on Google Cloud products, find those that you're most interested in, and then take a deeper dive into documentation, videos, and other available resources. It even works as a flashcard quiz, which comes in really handy if you are preparing for Google Cloud certifications. All of us learn differently. So, if you are more of a scrolling person then we made sure to give you a scrollable list view for accessing all the product descriptions in one spot.

If you are a developer (APIs are your language) and need the product descriptions to be included in your application, we built an API for you to easily integrate with your application. You can also use the API to stay on top of new product announcements.

Cheat Sheet in Cloud Console

We did not stop there! We also integrated the cheat sheet into Google Cloud Console. You can now enjoy quick and easy access to all the products and their descriptions with just one click, right inside Cloud Console. You can even pin the products that are of interest to you and they will show up at the top of your side menu. That way, you can quickly access your most-used products directly from the side menu instead of scrolling through the panel.

Next Steps

After you’ve had a chance to explore the new Google Cloud cheat sheet, we want to hear from YOU! I am eager to hear your feedback on these resources and your ideas for similar content that will help make your learning journey easier. Share with me on LinkedIn or on Twitter @pvergadia.
