    In the last two weeks I've learnt 365, Azure, Intune, SCCM and Autopilot. Now add google Cloud to the list of skills I can't even use at my job! Wish the market wasn't so bad so I could use the skills elsewhere.

    • +2

      Where did you learn all that from?

      • +8

        There’s some resources here

      • I worked at an MSP for four years so worked with MS365 E3 and Azure. SCCM is a hobby so brushed up on some knowledge gaps. Autopilot and Intune I learnt from scratch. Pretty much another powerful MDM solution like Jamf so pretty easy for knowledge transfer. I watched Pluralsight and CBTNuggets on the sections I wasn't familiar with.

      You're not working for the right company. Plenty of Cloud work out there if you look hard enough

      • +1

        Yep I know. Internal IT sucks compared to MSP/PS. The market is crap at the moment to jump ship right now.

        • +2

          I can confirm that the market is not slowed at all for all the three cloud providers, they are all still hiring here in Australia, headcount totally unchanged only difference is interviews are remote

    • +15

      That's not learning lol I guarantee you don't know anything more than a superficial overview. It'd take months to become decent at a single one of those products / environments.

      • Already had experience in them just Autopilot and Intune I learned from scratch. Others I had prior hands on experience and home lab experience. Azure is too much of a beast to know thoroughly. I didn't say I was an MSCE or anything.

    • plenty of jobs for azure/o365 engineers

      • +1

        Pretty sure this guy meant 365 as 365 Data Science, not office 365 as it is currently free for you to learn

        • may be, so wondering where did he learn Azure, Intune, Autopilot then )

    • Don't forget to include HP's Cloud!

    • You learned Azure in 2 weeks? hmmm.

    • And what did you learn? By the tine you take your head out of the hole, the tech migth have changeda nd they might have added like billion services to keep chasing your own tail! Just do it when you need the most else people in IT are just chasing their tails or technology knowing nothing what to implement and how.
      Leave it to vnedor to do their job and just manage it

    My Google cloud is already well behaved.

  • Seriously, if you have genuine skills in cloud, you would be answering calls left right and centre. Everyone is trying to move to the cloud right now to reduce costs in having to buy new hardware for 12months. That and new VPN services are booooooming!!

    • +2

      That's not entirely true. I've spent the past 12 months consulting on a number of large journey to cloud programs and more than half of them get canned and reverted back to on-premise infrastructure projects.

      • Yes, I believe you're right.

        I cannot find the source, however I was informed their was an IT Census that surveryed companies globally on what type of platform they used. Hybrid Solutions were the most popular.

  • Free AWS training anywhere?

    • +2

      Not free, but cheap and decent on udemy.

      See for some recommendations.

      I'm making myself watch 3-4 hours of tech training a day whilst unemployed and hibernating. It's surprisingly mentally exhausting.

    • Not free but this is a decent course on AWS:

      Ryan is the owner of A Cloud Guru and also has courses on pretty much any other AWS discipline, if architecture is not your thing.

      All AWS exams can now be done online, mine is in a month.

      • Thanks, let me look up. I personally prefer classroom training which cannot happen now.

  • thanks

  • +1

    Well, my work company provides access to same Google Material for free. Didn't budge much.
    This one here on OzB looks so tempting :)

  • Just of note .. although a great deal the access is free til end April - the 3 courses on offer on coursera are

    129 hrs
    161 hrs
    220 hrs

    Good luck anyone trying to get through one of those in a month :)

  • +1

    probably also worth noting it's a 'free trial' so you'll need to have your payment details handy to be charged when you forget to cancel (this is at least the case for coursera registrations)

    • +4

      i tried Coursera first and then backed out when it seemed like i had to provide payment card details. Tried the Qwiklabs options and got right in without having to hand over any payment details. Hope that helps someone else.

  • Does anyone know which platform has better material for GCP - Coursera, Pluralsight, or Quiklabs?

    • Some info on Quiklabs…

      I did the Google Cloud OnBoard training last week. Each day consisted of a few hours of presentations, followed by working through a Quiklabs lab related to some of the content discussed in the presentations.

      The Quiklabs labs are good for getting hands-on experience with the specifics of actual Google Cloud technologies, but are not by themselves a sufficient introduction. I would use them to reinforce other training, because you get to practice what you've learned about. They're like the hands-on labs done at some tech conferences, but without in-person lab assistants to help you step through the instructions. I like them and will continue to use them because they let you prove to yourself that you know how to do the things you've learned.

      I don't have experience with the other two providers in the particular context of GCP.

  • great

  • +1

    Linux Academy + AWS is my recommendation if you want a job in Australia. Barely any ads for GCP.

  • +5

    as a reminder and in case anyone interested , here you can learn more than 200 Azure related courses for free

    all major tracks/exams included - az-103, az-300, az-500, az-400, dp-200 etc

    • there will an upgrade soon 303,304 etc.

  • which is better considering the job perspective ? AWS or Azure or GCP ?

      One of the top Google results about cloud providers marketshare

      For people who don't want to click the link:

      Their current estimate for 2019 (probably still counting :) )

      Provider Market share Annual growth
      AWS 32.3% 26.0%
      Azure 16.9% 63.9%
      Google Cloud 6.2% 87.8%
      Alibaba Cloud 5.2% 63.8%

    • +1

      AWS / Azure. Easily.

      • Is popularity of Azure increasing now ? before AWS had more market share I as remember

      • +1

        Wouldn't you prefer to go with the ones that have the greatest growth?
        Surely they will be looking for more new hires.

  • Is this site even legit? People, pay attention to the domain and do a look up.
    I’m not sure about it.

  • It says "Please Wait"…
    Did you guys get the same?

    • No, you may have a script blocking the submission. Try in an incognito tab.

      • It worked! Many thanks, mate!

    What job titles would you be applying for with these skills?

    • +1

      Cloud Engineer

          • @AncientWisdom: But, you would need more than just these skills, I assume you'd need to be a programmer with CS degree and experience?

            • @alex123711: The roles should say what's needed. Usually experience would count more than a degree so if you don't have a degree it would be good to show some experience.

              I know I know, it's a catch 22. But everyone needs to break through it.

              • @AncientWisdom: I'm not too familiar with cloud, but I thought you basically need to be a programmer/ developer, then get some certifications like these for cloud roles?

                • @alex123711: Not necessarily for a junior role. It depends what's your existing knowledge of computers. One of the most surprising things for me when I started my career (with no degree) was how much more I knew about computers than (junior) people with degrees.

                  Add I said before, look at the role descriptions to understand that they expect.
