What is Cloud Hero? Cloud Hero is a game created with a series of hands on labs to teach you new and exciting skills with Google Cloud! We will use Qwiklabs to help teach students practical skills through guided, interactive, and fun learning labs. Even better, Cloud Hero has an open ended challenge lab so you can test your new skills in a competitive game against your fellow students.
Cloud Hero will give us an interactive and competitive learning experience to help you learn some awesome new Google Cloud skills. Additionally, if you join and complete this event with us, you will have the opportunity to unlock Qwiklabs for an additional 30 days! This can help you explore additional technologies, and skills which may help you reach your goals.
