Addressing the cloud skills gap
The partnerships follow the recently announced collaboration with online education provider Coursera, which will launch a series of on-demand Google Cloud training courses, ranging from beginner to advanced.
It is part of a wider move to support the development of cloud skills. This includes the recent acquisition of Qwiklabs, which provides training both online and in the classroom. At Cloud Next 2017, Google also announced that it has acquired Kaggle, a community of data scientists and machine learning enthusiasts, aimed at 'democratising' AI development skills.
