Getting to know a new technology can be intimidating. Maybe not as intimidating as meeting the world’s top secret agent, but still. And with 52% of enterprise companies in this Forbes contributor survey identifying themselves as “cloud first”, the pressure is on.
So what’s the best way for you to introduce yourself to the cloud? Here are three easy ways to start familiarizing yourself with Google Cloud. Even better, these resources are free of charge.
