Lab 1.1 Setting up GCP


I recently joined the course, Lab 1.1 doesn't contain any URL to login to GCP. Should we use our personal google account to setup the GCP by signing up for a free trial? what is the requirement for this?

please let me know

    You are responsible for providing your own lab environment. Each course in the bootcamp has specific instructions on what is needed. Please be advised that a free tier account may not be sufficient. Also, in the future, please include the course number you are referring to in the post title/subject.

    @fcioanca - Thanks for your information. I am not aware of this requirement.
    LFS253, this is the course number that I was referring to.

    If you look at Lab 1.1 of LFS253 - Containers Fundamentals, you'll note the lab explains how to use GCE for the lab exercises. This is the lab environment used for lab testing as well as instructor-led training. There are many options you could use to complete the lab exercise including using local hardware with Linux installed, Virtual Box running a Linux instance, or one of many cloud providers such as GCE, AWS, or Digital Ocean.
