Google Acquires Qwiklabs To Teach Developers Cloud Skills

Google has announced its acquisition of Qwiklabs, a startup that develops commercially available training courses that individuals and developers could use to become familiar with public cloud infrastructure services as well as the applications that run on them.

In a blog post to make the announcement, Jason Martin, Director, Professional Services Google Cloud wrote: “There’s no faster way to get hands-on experience with a cloud environment and to learn all the ins and outs of today’s modern cloud solutions than in a Qwiklabs lab. Qwiklabs offers step-by-step instructions to learn a popular cloud service, test different use cases and train your teams to become cloud experts.

“With Qwiklabs, we’re closing the IP skills gap in the cloud. More than half a million users have collectively spent over 5 million hours learning how to successfully deploy and manage multiple cloud technologies through the Qwiklabs platform. We’re focused on offering the most comprehensive, efficient, and fun way to train and onboard people across all our products on Google Cloud, including Google Cloud Platform and G Suite.

“We want to help businesses get the most out of their cloud investment and, with Qwiklabs, we’ll give users a place to learn and expand their cloud skills to deliver more innovation, more features and more efficiency for their customers.”
