The following collection of hands-on-labs on Qwiklabs has been made available to scholars of the Andela Learning Community (ALC) 4.0 program. A collaboration between Andela, Google and Pluralsight to grow with Google technology.

The links require that you're logged into your account on Pluralsight. Eventually, the links might stop to work after expiration of the program in January 2020. Alternatively, you can go directly to Qwiklabs and create an account on their platform.

Although phase 1 of the program has been concluded already I should have created the following set of URLs some weeks ago. Hence the article is more of a bookmark for my studies towards the Associate Cloud Engineer exam than some instructions. Not sure whether it's going to be helpful for anyone outside the ALC 4.0 program.

Feedback is most welcome in the comment section below.
