Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video How to use the exercise files, part of Up and Running with Google Cloud Platform.
- I'm very happy to announce that any member of lynda.com has access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Naturally, the information in this course is ultimately intended to be applied to your own web pages and applications. However, you may find it helpful to work with the supplied exercise files to practice the steps safely and without creating your own examples. To begin, using the files from the site, download them, extract them and then store those files in a convenient location, such as your desk top.
You can either follow the whole course, chapter by chapter or jump in at any point. And if you'd rather not use the Exercise Files, you can definitely follow along with your own assets.
