Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting underway, part of Up and Running with Google Cloud Platform.
- In this lesson we'll get hands on,…and I'll walk you through the sign-up process…for the Google Cloud Platform…and setting up your first project…so you can now what to expect.…The first thing you'll need,…and you probably already have,…is a Google account.…If you don't have one go to google.com,…and click "You",…and then go down and click…the "Create an account" link.…I've created a new Google account…so I can show you the entire sign-up process…for Google Cloud Platform.…
So let's go to cloud.google.com.…The homepage to the side will give you…some idea of what's available,…and there are various sections of the site…that you can browse.…Once you're ready to give it a go…click on the "Free Trial" link that you'll see.…Next, I'll sign into Google.…Now, during this recording Google has…a free trial offer running that for 60 days…with a $300-dollar credit,…so you can really try out all the features.…
I don't know if this offer will still be available…when you view the course but I hope…you can take advantage of this or something similar.…
