Google Cloud Platform (GCP) gives you options—so many that our technical writers can’t possibly explain everything you can do, no matter how fast they type. Did you know you can deploy a Grails app to App Engine? Or use Matplotlib to visualize your Stackdriver Monitoring metrics for Cloud Bigtable? You’d probably never find tutorials like these in the official documentation, but you can find them in the Community Tutorials.
GCP’s Community Tutorials are written by contributors, including Googlers, to share specialized knowledge about how to get stuff done on GCP. Anyone can contribute a tutorial to our GitHub repo. GCP staff reviews submissions and usually provides some editorial feedback and technical review. When your submission is approved, we publish the tutorial right to the GCP website.
We want you to use these tutorials as a resource, but we also want you to get excited about contributing. With Community Tutorials, you can:
Here’s what’s in it for you:
We launched Community Tutorials in beta in April, and already their numbers are starting to snowball: As of this writing, there are 104 Community Tutorials to choose from, with dozens more in the pipeline. We can’t wait to see how you contribute!
