Start your learning journey

We’ve created a unique learning series for technical practitioners of all experience levels. Each week, we’ll focus on a different theme to help you boost your skills--from the fundamentals to more advanced topics, including infrastructure, analytics, AI, and more. You can find our full schedule of learning content on our Learning Hub.

If you’re new to Google Cloud, or brushing up on the basics, join us during our weekly Cloud Study Jam where experts will walk you through relevant training and certification resources, lead you through hands-on labs, and answer your questions live.

Attending a Cloud Study Jam event will also prepare you to earn your first skill badge on Qwiklabs. Digital skill badges allow you to demonstrate your growing Google Cloud-recognized skillset and share your progress with your network. You can earn the badges by completing a series of hands-on labs, including a final assessment challenge lab, to test your skills.

Once you’re more confident in your skills, join our weekly Cloud Hero game. In this competitive challenge, you’ll find a curated collection of relevant hands-on labs to help you practice and track your progress with a live leaderboard.

We also invite you to join us weekly for Google Cloud Talks by DevRel. Each Friday of Next OnAir, we’ll do a recap of the week’s topic focusing on the content most relevant to developers and technical practitioners, host a Q&A session with members of the Google Cloud Developer Relations team, and deliver technical talks that supplement the week’s programming.
