What do Princess Leia headphones and SQL have in common?

Flare leg jeans, Princess Leia headphones and dad sneakers are all back in style and improving with age (OK the headphones at least sound better). Know what else has improved since its invention in the 70s? SQL.

Whether you’re digging deep into Big Query on a daily basis or you’re peripherally aware that your company relies on a SQL database (it probably does), SQL is better than ever in 2018 when you pair it with the power of GCP’s infrastructure. Set yourself apart among your peers by enrolling in the new Cloud SQL quest and learn how your company can take advantage of Cloud SQL’s simplicity, reliability and security. 

Use this link to enroll by Friday and you will get 35 credits to start your Quest free of charge. Hurry, offer ends soon!

Here’s some of what you will learn in the new quest:

  • Introduction to SQL for BigQuery and Cloud SQL: Start with this high-rated lab to get a basic understanding of SQL and GCP. “Good examples” and “learned SQL commands” according to lab reviews.
  • Choose your own adventure: Create a Cloud SQL instance with either Terraform or Deployment Manager. Or since you’re a subscriber, take both labs for no extra cost!
  • Meme me up: Deploy a highly available and scalable “meme generator” application by configuring a Postgres Cloud SQL database and connecting it to a Kubernetes cluster.

May the force be with you on your quest!
