Are you ready for an AI-first future?

Join Google Cloud CEO Diane Greene and other experts for a free online conference on the future of artificial intelligence. The conference rolls through time zones too, so no matter where you are in the world, there’s a session for you.

Prepare yourself for deep-dives by taking cloud training ahead of time. Each of the following quests guides you through using GCP tools to answer an AI business question or solve a technical challenge. Use what you learn to ask the best questions and have the most meaningful conversations with your conference moderators. Use these links for a 1-month pass to Qwiklabs (free of charge, no CC required). Offer ends November 13th. 

  1. Get your data insight-ready:

Enroll in the Baseline: Data, ML, AI quest to work with BigQuery, Cloud Speech API and Cloud ML Engine. Follow Mark as he guides your path in these 1-minute videos. You’re on your way to building a strong foundation in data management, cloud data warehouse and real-time analytics to implement AI.

2. Put AI to work, fast:

Enroll in the Data Science on GCP quests to practice data ingestion, preparation, exploration and visualization. Finish the first quest and move on to the next, which zooms in on running machine learning jobs with state-of-the-art tools and real-world data sets. The material for these quests comes from a book by Lak, who amongst others will elaborate on how data scientists, developers and others can incorporate AI into their products during the conference. 

3. See AI in action:

Brush up on your ML skills with the Machine Learning APIs quest – some of my favorite labs guide you through use cases like image classification with Cloud Vision API and building an AI chatbot (: Then you’re well on your way to learn how businesses use AI to solve complex business problems like fighting fraud.

Think you can finish one of these quests in one month? Enroll now and be the stand-out participant at the conference! 

You are invited to get started on your cloud journey

Did you know that the GCP Essentials quest shows you how to spin up a VM, configure key infrastructure tools, set up Load Balancers and work with Kubernetes nodes, all in less than four hours? Use this link to enroll in the quest by Friday, November 16th and you’ll get 10 Qwiklabs credits  (free of charge, no credit card required) to help you get started.

Then continue your cloud journey in person! Check out these events:

OnAir: Register for a live 45-minute webinar with Google Cloud experts to prepare for an AI-first future.  Join Diane Greene Google Cloud CEO, and the team for an interactive look at artificial intelligence by unlocking the benefits of machine learning.

DevFest: Another opportunity to meet with your community! DevFest is powered by a belief that when developers come together to exchange ideas, amazing things can happen. Each event is uniquely tailored to the needs of a hosted-region, and while your local event may or may not incorporate labs, we hope you can make it!

Next Extended: Not just in San Francisco – Next Extended events bring GCP to your town. Event starts off with food, networking and keynotes and transition to an open panel discussion. Attend a Next Extended event near you and be sure to join the hands-on labs session!

Summits: You can choose from over 20 sessions on machine learning, app development, infrastructure, security, etc. Work with executives, customers, partners, developers, IT decision makers and Google engineers to build the future of the cloud. Choose your city and see where the cloud takes you.

Google Cloud OnBoard: It’s a free, instructor-led training event, that introduces you to GCP. You’ll learn how to get started with virtual machines, containers, applications, big data, and machine learning through presentations and demonstrations. Attendees get a free 30-day pass to Qwiklabs to help you finish the GCP Essentials quest.

Study jams: We learn better together! Study jams are an opportunity to meet with the community of technology enthusiasts to brainstorm and dig deep into cloud concepts as a group. It’s a hands-on event where attendees get free access to the labs ($55+ value). You’ll learn fundamental GCP tools and technologies like Kubernetes, Stackdriver, and cloud storage with the GCP Essentials quest. Earn a Google-hosted badge to show your “flight time” with Google Cloud and encourage other members of your community to do the same.

Enroll in the GCP Essentials quest and come to an event near you. We look forward to meeting you!
